ASP Thompson Lecture - Remote Sensing of Land Use Processes: Beyond Patterns of Land Cover

Abstract:
There have been major advances in remote sensing of land cover in the last several decades.  With new sensors and the availability of longer time series, possibilities for using remote sensing not just to monitor land cover but to understand the processes driving land use change, including the impacts of climate and management, are becoming more feasible. The presentation will discuss several approaches using different types of remote sensing data to assess land use processes in tropical landscapes.
