Description

Advances in remote sensing technology, including high-resolution data from different sensors and platforms, offer us the opportunity to assess and monitor the terrestrial ecosystem changes over time. The combination of high spatial, temporal, and spectral multi-source data allows us not only to capture the detailed ecosystem dynamics on different spatial and temporal scales but also to detect changes in plant physiology, ecosystem structure, functions, productivity, and composition, which are caused by environmental stress and disease, from leaf to canopy and landscape. However, high data volume requires advances in data processing, data normalization, data integration and fusion, dimension reduction, and information extraction and sharing to better utilize our existing resources and tools for understanding terrestrial ecosystem changes under a warming climate. By organizing this special session, we hope to create an opportunity for researchers to exchange ideas around emerging data sources, novel techniques, data sharing procedures, and applications for retrieving, handling, and making the best use of multi-source data for terrestrial ecosystem health studies.
