    Water quality monitoring in sub-Saharan African lakes: a review of remote sensing applications

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Water quality deterioration in sub-Saharan Africa has attained a scale that requires scientific intervention. It is therefore important to devise appropriate and reliable techniques to investigate the water quality of lakes and reservoirs for the development of water resource management...
  3. Forest health and vitality: the detection and monitoring of <em>Pinus patula</em> trees infected by <em>Sirex noctilio</em> using digital multispectral imagery

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Hemisphere Forestry Journal
    The Eurasian woodwasp, Sirex noctilio, causes considerable tree mortality in commercial pine plantations in southern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Broad-scale visual assessments of infestation provided by forest managers are currently used to measure forest health and vitality. The effectiveness of visual...
