Remote Sensing of Anthropogenic Activities: Agricultural Production
The development of aquaculture in many parts of the world has led to significant loss or conversion of wetlands. Both radar and optical remote sensing data have been used to map the extent and also development of aquaculture, which is particularly prevalent in tropical regions. Aquaculture systems are particularly distinct because of their distinct geometry. A number of studies have focused on assessing the impacts of aquaculture development on wetland ecosystems, including mangroves.
