Blurb/Shorttext:
Mangroves forests are invaluable natural assets. Mangroves are used throughout the tropics as fishing areas, wildlife reserves, human habitation and aquaculture. In recent times, increasing anthropogenic activities have put severe pressure on land particularly in the Asian and Pacific regions. Mangrove forest areas have been the hardest hit in this regard. To study mangrove areas effectively and to monitor changes over time, accurate, rapid, and cost-effective monitoring techniques are required. The use of Remotely Sensed data offers many advantages in this respect and has been used to monitor deforestation and aquaculture activity, in environmental sensitivity analyses. This book has been written covering various aspects of Remote Sensing techniques for Mangrove Forest monitoring in order to cater to the needs of students, research scholars and teaching faculty in colleges and universities. A book of this kind will be of immense use to all those who study or teach Marine Biology, Botany and Remote Sensing. Since this book, contains detailed methodologies to study varies aspects of mangroves, it creates a vivid and essential reference text for all those interested in Mangroves.
