soil-humus

Determination of humus content in soils based on remote sensing materials is the most detailed methodological and practical section of the remote monitoring of soils. It is already widely used in practice and has credible results. With the right technology, the error of remote humus determination is not greater than the error of laboratory analytical […]

It seems that our previous posts have shown all the complicity and importance of soil map creation process. Remote sensing (RS) is a powerful and promising tool for improving this process. This term can be interpreted very freely, it covers various means of obtaining information, depending on the electromagnetic wave range used, equipment applied and […]

Modern software for satellite image processing offers its users a wide range of supervised classification algorithms (more detail can be found here). It yields powerful capabilities for automation of the image interpretation process. In return for that, a user should make training areas of high quality. It is this quality what defines the accuracy of the […]

earth-emitted-radiation

Bodies emit radiation. The warmer the body the more the emittance. When we look at the Sun, or even feel it on our skin without actually seeing it, we definitely know that it emits radiation. Especially when we forget about sunscreen. From Wien’s displacement law we can learn that the peak radiation of a black […]
