Land Cover Change Analysis in Tropical Forest Ecosystems Using GIS and Remote Sensing: The Kakum Conservation Area (KCA) of Ghana as a case study. CANDIDATE NUMBER: WORD COUNT: 13, (excluding references) Dissertation submitted in partial fulfillment for the award of the degree of Master of Science.

    The Forest Management Bureau, the government agency mandated to provide support for the effective protection, development, occupancy management, conservation of forest lands and watersheds, presents this manual on Watershed Characterization and Vulnerability Assessment Using Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing.   Forest management based on accurate forest inventory and assessment has profound implications in forest health issues of today. The focus of this proposal is on the development of remote sensing tools that will improve forest resources estimates and forest fire risk assessment. This goal provides the opportunity to greatly strengthen the case for the need .

Remote sensing is a cost-and-time efficient tool [17] that can be used for monitoring urban expansion [16,18] and the impact of human activities on.

The spatial characterisation and vertical analysis are together considered important to evaluate structure of forested landscapes. In recent years, increased human impacts have resulted in changes in landscape and structure of the forest ecosystem. The present study is aimed to analyse impacts of disturbance on landscape structure using satellite remote sensing Cited by: Remote Sensing and Forest Ecosystem Characterization.
