A methodological approach of climatological modelling of air temperature and precipitation through GIS techniques
This study proposes an empirical methodology for modelling and mapping the air temperature (mean maximum, mean and mean minimum) and total precipitation, all of which are monthly and annual, usingExpand
Widespread crown condition decline, food web disruption, and amplified tree mortality with increased climate change-type drought
It is found that defoliation trends are paralleled by significant increases in tree mortality rates in drier areas that are related to tree density and temperature effects, creating long-term disruptive effects of drought on food webs. Expand
Revision of the Single-Channel Algorithm for Land Surface Temperature Retrieval From Landsat Thermal-Infrared Data
The generalized single-channel (SC) algorithm developed by Jimenez-Munoz and Sobrino (2003) is extended to the thermal-infrared channel of the TM sensor onboard the Landsat-4 platform and the enhanced TM plus sensor onboard Thematic Mapper (TM) sensor, and updated fits using MODTRAN 4 radiative transfer code are presented.

Land-cover and land-use change in a Mediterranean landscape: A spatial analysis of driving forces integrating biophysical and human factors
Abstract This article develops a spatial analysis applied to examine the main driving forces of land-cover and land-use (LCLU) change in a Mediterranean region. Three different tools have been usedExpand
Wildfires and landscape patterns in the Eastern Iberian Peninsula
The relations between disturbance regime and landscape patterns have been developed from a theoretical perspective, but few studies have tested these relations when forces promoting opposingExpand
Monthly precipitation mapping of the Iberian Peninsula using spatial interpolation tools implemented in a Geographic Information System
SummaryIn this study, spatial interpolation techniques have been applied to develop an objective climatic cartography of precipitation in the Iberian Peninsula (583,551 km2). The resulting maps haveExpand
Vegetation recovery from fire has been widely studied at the stand level in many types of terrestrial ecosystems, but factors controlling regeneration at the landscape scale are less well known. OverExpand
Influence of fire severity on plant regeneration by means of remote sensing imagery
In this paper we analyse the interactions between fire severity (plant damage) and plant regeneration after fire by means of remote sensing imagery and a field fire severity map. A severity map wasExpand
Effect of High Temperature on the Growth and Reproduction of Corn Aphids (Homoptera: Aphididae) and Implications for Their Population Dynamics on the Northeastern Iberian Peninsula
The ability of aphid populations to adapt to high temperatures in the Iberia peninsula is suggested, suggesting the role of temperature as a key factor in determining aphid population dynamics in the northeastern Iberian peninsula. Expand
Objective air temperature mapping for the Iberian Peninsula using spatial interpolation and GIS
This study presents an objective mapping of monthly mean air temperature over the Iberian Peninsula using the spatial interpolation of climatological data. The research focuses on an interpolationExpand
