Spatiotemporal residual noise in terrestrial earth observation products, often caused by unfavorable atmospheric conditions, impedes their broad applications. Most users prefer to use gap-filled remote sensing products with time series reconstruction (TSR) algorithms. Applying currently available implementations of TSR to large-volume...

While the influence of surface melt on Antarctic ice shelf stability can be large, the duration and affected area of melt events are often small. Therefore, melt events are difficult to capture with remote sensing, as satellite sensors always face the trade-off between spatial and temporal resolution. To overcome this limitation, we developed...

Coasts are constantly under the pressure of hydrodynamic conditions such as waves, tides, and storms. In the Netherlands, sand nourishments are executed every few years in order to maintain the country’s sandy beaches for purposes of safety, recreation, and ecology. In order to determine where to carry out these nourishments, the whole sandy...

Antarctic blue ice areas are exposed due to erosion and sublimation of snow. At the same time, surface melt can form surface types that are spectrally similar to blue ice, especially at low elevations. These are termed melt-induced blue ice areas. Both types of blue ice are sensitive indicators of climate change. Satellite remote sensing is a...

Scarce water resources present a major hindrance to ensuring food security. Crop water productivity (WP), embraced as one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), is playing an integral role in the performance-based evaluation of agricultural systems and securing sustainable food production. This study aims at developing a cloud-based...

Long-term exposure to ambient air pollution is one of the main public health concerns worldwide. Exposure to air pollution is highly related to a range of diseases including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, such as lung cancers, asthma, diabetes, irregular heartbeat, stroke and obesity [1-3]. The outbreak of the pathogenic agent of...

Biophysical parameters are descriptors of crop growth and production estimates. Retrieval of these biophysical parameters from synthetic aperture radar sensors at operational scales is highly interesting given the increase in access to data from radar missions. Vegetation backscattering can be simulated using the water cloud model (WCM). Crop...

Agriculture is an important source of income for many countries in the Global South, where it may account for as much as 25% of GDP. Precipitation is crucial for agriculture in countries like Ghana, where ~95% of farming is rainfed. Accurate rainfall observations are limited in Ghana. The sparse rain gauge network and the lack of weather radars...

Groundwater use has seen a significant increase in the rapidly urbanising city of Kumasi, Ghana, due to its reliability, general good quality, and low-cost development. Conversion of vegetated to urban land along with the challenges of growing groundwater abstraction has put the groundwater system at risk. This study aims to assess how the...

This article presents a novel approach to explore mangrove dynamics on a prograding delta by integrating unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and satellite imagery. The Porong Delta in Indonesia has a unique geographical setting with rapid delta development and expansion of the mangrove belt. This is due to an unprecedented mud load from the LUSI...

In recent years, satellite imagery has shown its potential to support the sustainable management of land, water, and natural resources. In particular, it can provide key information about the properties and behavior of sandy beaches and the surrounding vegetation, improving the ecomor-phological understanding and modeling of coastal dynamics....

As a result of high-density urbanization and climate change, both the frequency and intensity of extreme urban rainfall are increasing. Drainage systems are not designed to cope with this increase, and as a result, floods are becoming more common in cities, particularly in the rapidly growing cities of China. To better cope with more frequent...

For cotton cultivation, large amounts of water are necessary. One of the countries facing water challenges related to cotton cultivation is India. India experiences a monsoon weather pattern causing large amount of rain from June to October and no rain during the other months. One of the challenges India’s small holder cot- ton farmers face is...

The world's coasts are at risk: an estimated 24% of the world's beaches are eroding. Extreme events such as storms continuously threaten the coastal region and pose a serious risk of coastal flooding. Under the influence of climate change, the seaward pressures are only expected to increase. Sea level rise is accelerating, storm intensities and...

Research on the physical, ecological and environmental processes in the coastal zone often rely on the availability of accurate bathymetric information. The traditional method to acquire these data is by conducting depth soundings from a vessel, which is a very accurate way for measuring bottom elevations in all kinds of water, but has as a...

In many parts of the world, water retained in snowpack and glaciers are critical to the stability of downstream ecosystems and human society. This study sets out to quantify, map, and explain the spatiotemporal pattern of annual snow cover duration, which are quantified by regional differences in the number of annual snow cover days (Dsc) and...

Invasive Spartina alterniflora (S. alterniflora), a native riparian species in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, has led to serious degradation to the ecosystem and biodiversity as well as economic losses since it was introduced to China in 1979. Although multi-temporal remote sensing offers unique capability to monitor S. alterniflora over large...

Population growth in rural areas of Egypt is rapidly transforming the landscape. New cities are appearing in desert areas while existing cities and villages within the Nile floodplain are growing and pushing agricultural areas into the desert. To enable control and planning of the urban transformation, these rapid changes need to be mapped...
