Remote sensing is the science and art of obtaining information about an object through the analysis of data acquired by a device that is not in contact with the object (Lillesand and Keifer, 1994). Remotely sensed data can be of many forms, including variations in force distribution, acoustic wave distribution or electromagnetic energy distributions and can(More)
Assessing the nature and extent of damage due to natural calamities remains one of the thrust areas in monitoring resource inventory through remote sensing. The effect of the cyclone Phailin and the post-incessant rains during second fortnight of October 2013 on coastal Odisha was studied in terms of rice area flooded, submerged and damaged. Multi-temporal(More)
Energy-water-carbon cycle is the central theme of biosphere-atmosphere interaction to understand the response and feedback processes in a climate system. The crop response in a semi-arid climate is frequently encountered by water scarcity due to maldistribution of rainfall or lack of irrigation water leading to low agricultural productivity. The(More)
The atmospheric radiative forcing is a central theme of climate change impact studies. The presence of Atmospheric Brown Clouds due to increased aerosol concentrations and green house gases such as water vapour, CO2 alter solar radiation and atmospheric thermal regimes. Both have strong feedbacks on open water evaporation. The measured daily global (direct(More)
The role of land surface in earth-atmosphere system is crucial to predict weather and future climate at meso (~10 km) and micro (~ 1 km) scales. Systematic measurements of Land Surface Processes (LSP) within boundary layer are extremely important to understand the vegetation-atmosphere feedback, to develop new parameterization schemes for Land Surface(More)
