Electromagnetic Spectrum: Regions Relevant to Wetlands

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The electromagnetic spectrum describes the frequencies of electromagnetic radiation with the spectral, thermal, and microwave regions being of key importance for characterizing, mapping, and monitoring the components of wetlands. A diverse range of ground, airborne, and spaceborne active and passive sensors are available to provide data in these regions, with these operating across a broad range of spatial resolutions and coverages and temporal frequencies.
