Remote Sensing of Rice to Detect Arsenic Contamination

Arsenic toxicity of humans due to consumption of arsenic-contaminated rice is an international health crisis. Arsenic is often supplied through water from shallow wells used for irrigation of rice. Reduced soil conditions present in flooded rice fields enable the arsenic to be converted to a form that is easily taken-up by the plants. Arsenic levels […]

Fire Emission Estimation Informed by Spectral Data

Environmental and remote sensing scientists at UC Berkeley are utilizing SOC710-VP ground spectral imaging data, along with airborne and satellite data in a geospatial context for revising and improving the Berkeley Emission Estimation System (EES).
