Tsunami[ edit ] Mangrove offers protection against tsunami and storms from sweeping away inland areas because the mangrove fringes were damaged and took all the energy. Nielsen, R. Climate and Appl. Quaternary sediments include a variety of sand types which are easily moved by the wind.

The results indicated that Landsat time series data are appropriate for deriving rangeland landscape change information. Baret, F. Soil samples were collected at a depth of cm in an area of 1 m2 in a Z pattern using a soil auger along the transect line. While the revisions have tended to favour increased development densities, conversions of productive agricultural lands to residential, industrial and commercial developments, the distribution of transportation arteries have significantly determined the nature, magnitude, trend, pattern and rate of urban development and the distribution of economic activities. Spatial characteristic of urban heat island in Johor Bahru.

As an example of planetary applications using remote sensing could be illustrated by the volcanism observation on Iowhich features the highest number of active volcanoes per square kilometer in the Solar System. The effects of image fusion on object-oriented classification. The capacity of rangelands as a feed source for livestock and the support of sustainable livelihoods for herders has been reduced due to the combination of various factors, including degradation due to overgrazing and expansion of cultivation Bounejmate et al. Libyan rangelands are one of the significant pillars of support for the Libyan national economy. Seelan, and C. The least mean values observed for BRL could be due to; loss of root carbon, leading to a reduction in carbon inputs from the roots and leaf litter, reduced microbial activity due to increased soil temperature relative to ABL and SAF as it was also noted by Mills and Fey and loss of top soil through erosion and increased soil compaction, causing an increase in soil bulk density.

The overall mean was 1. In the yearthe area of the city under the forest cover was They found a high degree of variation between technicians in traditional monitoring, with results of estimated cover being highly subjective and commonly based on visual estimates Coulloudon et al.

Monitoring rangeland using fieldwork techniques presents a challenge in arid and semi-arid areas due to the large geographical area, rough terrain and rich diversity over short distances. Boston, MA. Bunn, A. It receives an annual rainfall of mm which exhibited both temporal and spatial variability and bimodal distribution.

C and Karl, T. The study therefore, sought to establish the relationship between vegetation cover types and SOCS in northern rangelands of Kenya as an indirect method of estimating SOCS in the field. A number of studies have been done to estimate SOCS at global scales Post et al ; Eswaran et al Sombroek et al ; BatjeThese Mapping rangeland vegetation in Northern Kenya from Landsat data.

Budge, eds. Green vegetation cover is an important factor in regard to rangeland status and is a key sensitivity indicator of land degradation and desertification.

This study further reveals marked encroachment and degradation of the gazetted and protected areas such as the forests and the Nairobi National Game Park by the urban built-up developments and other anthropogenic activities such as grazing.

Vegetation mapping Monitoring vegetation cover is an essential process in rangeland management, as vegetation is the most effective indicator for identifying land degradation and it provides information that helps the understanding of climate and human impacts on rangeland condition.Satellite-based remote sensing has the potential to provide long term coverage of large remote areas on Mount Kenya, especially using the free Landsat data archive and moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) fire products.
