Question
Hello everyone. I had yearly data on the tree ring width of the different species.
I read many research papers and they had calculated the correlation between the tree ring and monthly temperature.
I had tried a lot but not successful to calculate and draw the correlation. Because it is easy to calculate the correlation between tree rings and yearly temperature data. But, how it possible to correlate the tree ring with monthly data when we have taken the reading of the tree ring yearly (counting the growth ring).
For reference, I already have the monthly temperature data.
Thanks in Advance.
Question
Hello guys, I am new to remote sensing and GIS.
I am stuck in one problem. Actually, I had carried out the land use land cover classification but the main problem is to make the land use land cover classification at different altitudes.
I already had the DEM but doesn't know how to determine the values for the different classes at various altitudinal ranges.
Thanks in advance.
Question
Agroforesty is the deliberate combination of the agriculture crops and forest trees on the same piece of the land management unit. Researcher generally presumed that the agroforestry systems are only present on the agriculture lands. Although from my point of view agroforestry systems like silvopastoral, Protein bank, Energy plantations are present beyond the agriculture lands. Pleases give suggestion with reference.
