The Impact of Agricultural Soil Erosion on the Global Carbon Cycle
Using caesium-137 and carbon inventory measurements from a large-scale survey, consistent evidence is found for an erosion-induced sink of atmospheric carbon equivalent to approximately 26% of the carbon transported by erosion.
Application of Radioactive Fallout Cesium-137 for Measuring Soil Erosion and Sediment Accumulation Rates and Patterns: A Review
Radioactive fallout Cs (cesium-137) deposited across the landscape from atmospheric nuclear tests is strongly absorbed on soil particles limiting its movement by chemical and biological processes.
Remote sensing in hydrology
Fate of triclosan and evidence for reductive dechlorination of triclocarban in estuarine sediments.
Analysis of 137Cs/7Be-dated sediment cores taken near wastewater treatment plants in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, Maryland and Jamaica Bay, New York, produced the first evidence for complete sequential dechlorination of triclocarban to the transformation products dichloro-, monochloro- and unsubstituted carbanilide.
Remote Sensing Techniques to Assess Water Quality
Remote sensing techniques can be used to monitor water quality parameters (i.e., suspended sediments (turbidity), chlorophyll, and temperature). Optical and thermal sensors on boats, aircraft, and
Comparison of laser and field measurements of vegetation height and canopy cover
Distribution of vegetation properties is fundamental for understanding vegetation patterns and characteristics, improving estimates of infiltration, evapotranspiration, and soil erosion. A laser
Applications and Research Using Remote Sensing for Rangeland Management
Rangelands are grasslands, shrublands, and savannas used by wildlife for habitat and livestock in order to produce food and fiber. Assessment and monitoring of rangelands are currently based on
