Mapping groundwater-dependent ecosystems using remote sensing measures of vegetation and moisture dynamics

Barron, Olga V; Emelyanova, Irina V.; Van Niel, Thomas G.; Pollock, Daniel; Hodgson, Geoff

Description

Protection of groundwater-dependent ecosystems (GDEs) is an important criterion in sustainable groundwater management, particularly when human water consumption is in competition with environmental water demands; however, the delineation of GDEs is commonly a challenging task. The Groundwater-dependent Ecosystem Mapping (GEM) method proposed here is based on interpretation of the land surface response to the drying process derived from combined changes in two multispectral indices, the...[Show more]
