List of publications of the laboratory researchers

Basic academic directions of activity:

Development of methods of study of the forests, built on the modern information technologies and information of the remote sensing, including:

  • the drawing a map of forest cover;
  • the detection and drawing a map of fires;
  • the exposure of large hearths of mass reproduction of the insects-wreckers of forest;
  • the estimation of consequences from forest fires, insects-wreckers and other revolting factors of change of forests.

Creation of the GIS-technologies for decision of tasks of the operative monitoring of forest fires, mass reproduction of insects-wreckers of forest, on the Federal and regional levels.

Basic academic results

The following academic results are got during the last 5 years:

  • The methodology of the continental drawing maps of forests from data of SPOT-VEGETATION, is developed joint with the Institute of Space Researches and Institute of Stability of Environment of the United Research Centre of European Commission (Global Land Cover Initiative GLC2000);
  • The researches are conducted and the methods of exposure of damages of the forests from insects-wreckers on the images of the TERRA-MODIS, are developed;
  • The algorithms of drawing a map of fresh cinders on the images of the TERRA-MODIS, are created;
  • The programmatic shell for creation of the specialised GYS as they apply to monitoring of the state of vegetable ecosystems (forest fires, insects-wreckers, agricultural vegetation, etc.), is developed.
