About this book

Remote sensing and GIS are increasingly used as tools for monitoring and managing forests. This data is often the primary source of information for understanding forest and landscape level disturbance. The focus of Forest Disturbance and Spatial Pattern: Remote Sensing and GIS Applications is on the application of both remote sensing and GIS technology to forest change and disturbance. The book explores how remote sensing and GIS can be used to evaluate the predisposition of forests to disturbance caused by the effects of fire, insect, infestation, forest harvesting and extreme weather events. Pattern characterization is also a major topic explored by this volume.
