As I mentioned in a previous post, last September I participated to
the Recent Advances in Quantitative Remotes Sensing Symposium. I
presented several posters there. One of them was about the work done
by Benoît Beguet for his master thesis while he was at CESBIO earlier
The goal of the work was to assess the potential of high temporal and
spatial resolution multispectral images for the monitoring of soil
states related to agricultural practices.
This is an interesting topic for several reasons, the main ones being:
- a bare soil map at any given date is useful for erosion forecast
and nitrate pollution estimations
- the knowledge about the dates of different types of agricultural
soil work can give clues about the type of crop which is going to
The problem was difficult, since we used 8 m. resolution images (so no
all, for some transitions – changes – between states.
