—An unmixing-based data fusion technique is used to generate images that have the spatial resolution of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and the spectral resolution provided by the Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) sensor. The method requires the optimization of the following two parameters: the number of classes used to classify the TM image and(More)
This study investigated the relation between vegetation reflectance and elevated concentrations of the metals Ni, Cd, Cu, Zn and Pb in river floodplain soils. High-resolution vegetation reflectance spectra in the visible to near-infrared (400-1350 nm) were obtained using a field radiometer. The relations were evaluated using simple linear regression in(More)
Foliar concentration of the main photosynthetic pigments chlorophyll a and b (Cab) is widely regarded as a generic bioindicator of the actual plant status. However, when the scale moves up to stand level, relationships between the spectral response and leaf chemistry tend to break down due to confounding factors such as canopy structure, woody elements and(More)
Multi-sensor image fusion using the wavelet approach provides a conceptual framework for the improvement of the spatial resolution with minimal distortion of the spectral content of the source image. This paper assesses whether images with a large ratio of spatial resolution can be fused, and evaluates the potential of using such fused images for mapping(More)
Historic land-cover/use change is important for studies on climate change, soil carbon, and biodiversity assessments. Available reconstructions focus on the net area difference between two time steps (net changes) instead of accounting for all area gains and losses (gross changes). This leads to a serious underestimation of land-cover/use dynamics with(More)
(2007). Physically-based retrievals of Norway spruce canopy variables from very high spatial resolution hyperspectral data. Abstract This study was conducted to answer two research questions: (1) what is the spatial variability of the leaf optical properties between 400-1600 nm (hemispherical-directional reflectance, transmittance, absorption) within young(More)
Binding of 125I-[Sar1,Ile8] angiotensin II (AII) to sections of brains from both wild and laboratory rabbits was determined by in vitro autoradiography. In the forebrain, specific high density binding was observed in the olfactory bulb, organum vasculosum of the lamina terminalis (OVLT), subfornical organ, median eminence, lateral septum, median preoptic(More)
Angiotensin II receptor and angiotensin converting enzyme distributions in the human medulla oblongata were localised by quantitative in vitro autoradiography. Angiotensin II receptors were labelled with the antagonist analogue 125I-[Sar1, Ile8] AII while angiotensin converting enzyme was labelled with 125I-351A, a derivative of the specific converting(More)
This paper describes the results of a study towards the use of MERIS for land cover mapping at a national scale, using the Netherlands as a test site. th 2003 were used in this study. The Dutch land use database LGN was used as a reference by aggregating the database from 25 m to 300 m. Results showed very good geometric characteristics of the MERIS images(More)
