1. Integrating satellite images and topographic data for mapping seasonal grazing management units in pastoral landscapes of eastern Africa.

We present a framework for mapping grazing management units in extensive pastoral landscapes. Mapping such units from remote sensing, particularly in the pastoral landscapes of East Africa, is usually hampered by high cost of field data collection and by the fact that the relationship between...

2. Wind erosion caused clustered development and rapid growth of nebkhas in the eastern Qaidam Basin of the Tibetan Plateau.

The formation of nebkhas is more complex and more sensitive to environmental changes than non-phytogenic dunes because of the influence of shrubs. To understand the relations between nebkha formation and wind erosion, this study determined the various phases of clustered development and rapid...
