Land-Cover-Change Trajectories in Southern Cameroon

  title={Land-Cover-Change Trajectories in Southern Cameroon},
  author={Benoit Mertens and Eric F. Lambin},
The objective of this study is to better understand the complexity of deforestation processes in southern Cameroon by testing a multivariate, spatial model of land-cover change trajectories associated with deforestation. The spatial model integrates a spectrum of independent variables that characterize land rent on a spatially explicit basis. The use of a time series of high-spatialresolution remote sensing images (Landsat MSS and SPOT XS), spanning two decades, allows a thorough validation of… CONTINUE READING
