Article
Growing populations require increased food production through increasing yields and expanding land use. Thus, agricultural production has a dialectical relationship with natural resource conservation. South America has been the recent site of both intensification and areal expansion of crop production. The presented study investigates the dynamics...

Phenological responses of vegetation to global warming impact ecosystem gross primary production and evapotranspiration. However, high resolution and large spatial scale observational evidence of such responses in undisturbed core forest areas is lacking. Here, we analyse MODIS satellite data to assess monthly trends in gross primary productivity a...

Shifts in climate driven by anthropogenic land use and land cover change are expected to alter various land–atmosphere interactions. Evapotranspiration (ET) is one of these processes and plays a fundamental role in the hydrologic cycle. Using gridded reanalysis and remote sensing data, we investigated the spatiotemporal trends of precipitation, tem...

Freely available global digital elevation models (DEMs) are important inputs for many research fields and applications. During the last decade, several global DEMs have been released based on satellite data. ASTER and SRTM are the most widely used DEMs, but the more recently released, AW3D30, TanDEM-X and MERIT, are being increasingly used. Many re...

Applying remote sensing technology to map and monitor agriculture and its impacts can greatly contribute for the proper development of this activity, promoting efficient food, fiber and energy production. For that, not only remote sensing images are needed, but also ground truth information, which is a key factor for the development and improvement...

Persistent forest loss in the Brazilian Legal Amazon (BLA) is responsible for carbon emission, reduction of ecosystem services, and loss of biodiversity. Combining spatial data analysis with high spatial resolution data for forest cover and forest loss, we quantified the spatial and temporal patterns of forest dynamics in the BLA. We identified an...
Article
Remote sensing (RS) technology is a viable complementary alternative to current agriculture surveying methods. RS data spectral information is the main variable used for several purposes, such as crop type identification. However, different management practices (MP) adopted in crop cultivation may alter its spectral characteristics. The objective o...
Article
Full-text available
The agricultural activity can greatly benefit from remote sensing technology (RS). Optical passive RS has been vastly explored for agricultural mapping and monitoring, in despite of cloud cover issue. This is observed even in the tropics, where frequency of clouds is very high. However, more studies are needed to better understand the high dynamism...
Article
Full-text available
The monitoring of agricultural activities at a regular basis is crucial to assure that the food production meets the world population demands, which is increasing yearly. Such information can be derived from remote sensing data. In spite of topic’s relevance, not enough efforts have been invested to exploit modern pattern recognition and machine le...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Traditionally, planting sugarcane is due to the imposition of the width of the gauge of agricultural machines, which are limited to some already established technologies that require innovation. The use of wider spacing facilitates mechanization, avoids damages caused by trampling and conditioning the culture to the machines characteristics. Howeve...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Global climate change is a highly quoted issue nowadays. Therefore, actions related to rational and efficient use of cultivated lands, which is the main goal of precision agriculture, are required. Sugarcane culture provides an energetic alternative to achieve lower greenhouse gas emissions. In this study we present preliminary results of a methodo...
