José Alexandre Melo Demattê, Clécia Cristina Barbosa Guimarães, Caio Troula Fongaro, Emmily Larissa Felipe Vidoy, Veridiana Maria Sayão, André Carnieletto Dotto, [...]


ABSTRACT: The study of soils, including their physical and chemical properties, is essential for agricultural management. Soil quality must be maintained to ensure sustainable production of food and conservation of natural resources. In this context, soil mapping is important to provide spatial information, which can be performed using remote sensing (RS) techniques. Modeling through use of satellite data is uncertain regarding the amplitude of replicability of the models. The aim of this study was to develop a quantification model for […]

Is It Possible to Classify Topsoil Texture Using a Sensor Located 800 km Away from the Surface?

ABSTRACT It is often difficult for pedologists to “see” topsoils indicating differences in properties such as soil particle size. Satellite images are important for obtaining quick information for large areas. However, mapping extensive areas of bare soil using a single image is difficult since most areas are usually covered by vegetation. Thus, the aim of this study was to develop a strategy to determine bare soil areas by fusing multi-temporal satellite images and classifying them according to soil textures. Three […]
