Opportunities and Challenges in Emerging Applications for UV, Visible & IR Remote Sensing


Remote sensing first developed in the 1880s when Sir Walther Noel Hartley described the strong UV absorptions between 200 and 300 nm in the atmosphere due to ozone. Developing steadily since then, with particular surges of progress during the two World Wars, remote sensing techniques now contribute to many aspects of life and utilize several regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The major ones are the UV / Vis / IR (ultraviolet, visible, and near- infrared) region (< 3 μm wavelength) which measure reflected solar energy, and the mid- infrared, thermal-infrared, and microwave regions (> 3 μm wavelength) which measure emitted radiation from the Earth’s surface and atmosphere.

New map of world vegetation reveals substantial changes since 1980s


A botany researcher at New Zealand’s University of Otago and colleagues have developed a new system to map the world’s “biomes” – large-scale vegetation formations – that will provide an objective method for monitoring how vegetation reacts as climate changes.
