Modelling and analyzing the watershed dynamics using Cellular Automata (CA)–Markov model – A geo-information based approach
Improper practices of land use and land cover (LULC) including deforestation, expansion of agriculture and infrastructure development are deteriorating watershed conditions. Here, we have utilizedExpand
Development of Decadal (1985-1995-2005) Land Use and Land Cover Database for India
The present study utilizes the satellite images to generate national level LULC maps at decadal intervals for 1985, 1995 and 2005 using onscreen visual interpretation techniques with minimum mapping unit of 2.5 hectares to conclude that this dataset has captured the maximum cumulative patch diversity frequency, indicating the detailed representation that can be attributed to the on- screen visual interpretation technique.

Aboveground biomass estimation using multi-sensor data synergy and machine learning algorithms in a dense tropical forest
Abstract Forest aboveground biomass (AGB) is an important factor for tracking global carbon cycle to tackle the impact of climate change. Among all available remote sensing data and methods,Expand
We integrated five indicator indices viz., wildlife distribution index (WDI), ecological value index (EVI), ecotourism attractivity index (EAI), environmental resiliency index (ERI), ecotourismExpand
Aboveground biomass and carbon stock assessment in Indian tropical deciduous forest and relationship with stand structural attributes
Abstract Indian tropical deciduous forest due to higher species richness, irregular stem densities and stem cover, multistoried canopy and microclimate, offers dynamism to the understanding of theExpand
Future of Endemic Flora of Biodiversity Hotspots in India
India is one of the 12 mega biodiversity countries of the world, which represents 11% of world's flora in about 2.4% of global land mass. Approximately 28% of the total Indian flora and 33% ofExpand
Estimate of the global distribution of stratiform supercooled liquid water clouds using the LITE lidar
[1] Supercooled liquid water clouds can occur in the form of thin layers that have a much larger radiative impact than ice clouds of the same water content because of their smaller particle size, yetExpand
Lidar remote sensing for forestry applications: The Indian context
This article advocates that forest management strategy in India should be based on reliable, lidar-derived database on forest structure and its productive potentials. Expand
Can the distribution of sal (Shorea robusta Gaertn. f.) shift in the northeastern direction in India due to changing climate
The study highlights utility of the archived remote sensing data in providing locational information in climate change studies by identifying moisture as the key player that would influence the distribution to shift towards northern and eastern India with greater than 90% certainty. Expand
High plant endemism in an Indian hotspot – eastern Himalaya
A preliminary investigation in the Subansiri area of the eastern Himalaya recorded high plant endemism. As a regular exercise of field sampling of various forest types to map the biorich areas, theExpand
