Multitemporal remote sensing for inlandwater bodies andwetland monitoring
Date of Original Version
Remote sensing is critically important in monitoring inland water and wetlands for protecting the related environments and ecosystems. This chapter summarizes remote sensing applications in water and wetland monitoring, in particular in the subject areas of monitoring water quality, water surface areas and water fluctuation in wetland areas. The chapter then introduces two cases of monitoring studies in the Poyang Lake, the largest fresh water lake in China, in terms of monitoring of fluctuation and variation of water surface areas usingMODIS data product, and monitoring of variation of natural wetlands corresponding to the changing water levels of Poyang Lake using Landsat data.
