Savanna ecosystems comprise 22% of the global terrestrial surface and 25% of Australia (almost 1.9 million km2) and provide significant ecosystem services through carbon and water cycles and the maintenance of biodiversity. The current structure, composition and distribution of Australian savannas have coevolved with fire, yet remain driven by the dynamic(More)
Effective monitoring is necessary to conserve mangroves from further loss in Malaysia. In this context, remote sensing is capable of providing information on mangrove status and changes over a large spatial extent and in a continuous manner. In this study we used Landsat satellite images to analyze the changes over a period of 25 years of mangrove areas in(More)
Research on atmospheric aerosols has become an important component in atmospheric studies due to its tremendous implications to radiation budget, climate change, hydrological and carbon cycles. Several recent studies have analysed the spatio-temporal patterns of aerosols and their relationship with meteorological conditions which is essential to quantify(More)
Recent methods for detailed and accurate biomass and carbon stock estimation of forests have been driven by advances in remote sensing technology. The conventional approach to biomass estimation heavily relies on the tree species and site-specific allometric equations, which are based on destructive methods. This paper introduces a non-destructive,(More)
44 45 Savanna ecosystems comprise 22% of the global terrestrial surface and 25% of Australia 46 (almost 1.9 million km 2) and provide significant ecosystem services through carbon and 47 water cycles and biodiversity. The current structure, composition and distribution of 48 Australian savannas have co-evolved with fire, yet remain driven by the dynamics of(More)
