—Differences in within-species phenology and structure are controlled by genetic variation, as well as topography, edaphic properties, and climatic variables across the landscape, and present important challenges to species differentiation with remote sensing. The objectives of this paper are as follows: 1) to evaluate the classification performance of a(More)
Southern African savanna ecosystems and their woody resources are under pressure. Governments in the region need locally calibrated, cost effective, and regularly updated information on these resources in order to satisfy both national and international commitments to manage them. Using LiDAR data as a calibration dataset, this paper sets out to investigate(More)
Fully polarimetric Radarsat-2 imagery from wet and dry conditions over the South African Lowveld is compared to assess its value for fuel moisture mapping. Imagery was acquired at two different dates, in May (end of summer, wet) and in August (mid of winter, dry). Sample plots were classified into two broad Lowveld site types (herbaceous-dominated and shrub(More)
