—An experimental method to select the number of principal components in minimum noise fraction (MNF) is proposed to process images measured by imagery sensors onboard aircraft or satellites. The method is based on an experimental measurement by spectrometers in dark conditions from which noise structure can be estimated. To represent typical land conditions(More)
This paper aims to assess the suitability of remote sensing for enhancing the management of water body resources and for providing an inexpensive way to gather, on a wide area, weed infestation extent and optical parameter linked to the water body status. Remotely sensed satellite images and ancillary ground true data were used to produce land cover maps,(More)
This study aims at comparing the capability of different sensors to detect land cover materials within an historical urban center. The main objective is to evaluate the added value of hyperspectral sensors in mapping a complex urban context. In this study we used: (a) the ALI and Hyperion satellite data, (b) the LANDSAT ETM+ satellite data, (c) MIVIS(More)
In this paper, we present the results of a hyperspectral airborne and in situ campaign in Montenegro aimed at individuating and monitoring two hazardous materials. They are the residues of the bauxite processing, i.e. red mud, and the asbestos fibers applied in the building materials. We perform laboratory analyses of asbestoscement, red mud and soil(More)
Quantitative analysis of atmospheric optical properties and surface reflectance can be performed by applying radiative transfer theory in the Atmosphere-Earth coupled system, for the atmospheric correction of hyperspectral remote sensing data. This paper describes a new physically-based algorithm to retrieve the aerosol optical thickness at 550 nm (τ(550))(More)
The ISTIMES project, funded by the European Commission in the frame of a joint Call "ICT and Security" of the Seventh Framework Programme, is presented and preliminary research results are discussed. The main objective of the ISTIMES project is to design, assess and promote an Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)-based system, exploiting(More)
Gracilaria confervoides Grev. ist die einzige nutzbare Rotalge in Italien. Ausgedehnte Kolonien befinden sich in den Lagunen der nördlichen Adria. In diesen Bereichen (Bucht von Goro bei Ferrara) sind von 1968 bis 1969 Untersuchungen über die ökologischen Faktoren (Temperatur, Salinität, Nährsalze, Sauerstoffgehalt) durchgeführt worden, welche die Standorte(More)
