Leaf area index (LAI) is one of the surface parameters that has importance in climate, weather, and ecological studies, and has been routinely estimated from remote sensing measurements. Canada-wide LAI maps are now being produced using cloud-free Advanced Very High-Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) imagery every 10 days at 1-km resolution. The archive of these(More)
Satellite remote sensing and numerical modelling are important tools to quantify trends in the environment across Canada. This paper describes methodology and initial results for the production of a new 1-km resolution map of waterbody fraction and 10-km resolution maps of forest cover type (hardwood/softwood) required as input parameters to these(More)
In this paper, we will present the results of several case studies focusing on RADARSAT-2 InSAR monitoring of several different types of landslides and the uses of enhanced RADARSAT-2 polarimetric composites for surficial geological and terrain mapping in Canada. InSAR techniques are increasingly being used in slope stability assessment [1, 2 3]. Our(More)
In this paper, we present the results of several case studies using InSAR techniques from high resolution RADARSAT to monitor active landslides triggered by earthquakes and other geomorphic processes. Our results have shown that our InSAR results were used that facilitate mitigation efforts along strategic transportation and energy corridors as well as(More)
