  • Lucas, Richard (Springer Nature, 2016-09-09)
    At local to global scales, wetlands can be observed, characterized, mapped, and monitored using a diverse range of ground, airborne, and spaceborne sensors operating in different modes and across different spatial and ...
  • Lucas, Richard (Springer Nature, 2017-01-09)
    The electromagnetic spectrum describes the frequencies of electromagnetic radiation with the spectral, thermal, and microwave regions being of key importance for characterizing, mapping, and monitoring the components of ...
  • Lucas, Richard; Costa, Maycira (Springer Nature, 2016-09-15)
    A wide range of sensors operate in the spectral region of the electromagnetic spectrum where they provide information that allows characterization, mapping, and monitoring of wetlands. Key among these are the Landsat sensors ...
  • Chapman, Bruce; Hess, Laura; Lucas, Richard (Springer Nature, 2016-09-15)
    Seasonally varying inundation extent and duration are key properties of wetlands, but are poorly quantified, particularly in tropical, boreal, and coastal regions. Optical sensors such as Landsat are limited by cloud cover, ...
  • Lucas, Richard (Springer Nature, 2016-09-09)
    The characterization, mapping, and monitoring of mangroves based on remote sensing data has proved challenging as the prevalence of cloud cover in many areas they inhabit limits observations by optical sensors, diurnal ...
  • Lucas, Richard (Springer Nature, 2016-09-12)
    Seagrasses occur in shallow coastal waters across the world, and are comprised of single or mixed species meadows that are often interspersed with various other benthic cover types, including macroalgae, mangroves and ...
  • Lucas, Richard; Milne, Tony (Springer Nature, 2016-09-09)
    Expansive semiarid wetlands include those within the Okavango Delta in southern Africa, the Nile Basin of northern Africa, and those within Murray Darling Basin in Australia, although smaller wetlands are commonplace. Many ...
  • Lucas, Richard (Springer Nature, 2016-08-24)
    Across much of the temperate zone, bogs, mires, and fens are relatively limited in their extent because of anthropogenic conversion of the habitat itself and/or the surrounding landscape. This is particularly the case in ...
