Usage of the Earth remote sensing data for the assessment of surface water area dynamics on the basis of Iziaslav district of Khmelnytsky region, Ukraine

It’s been established that the problem of disappearing of open water body and the use of Earth remote sensing data for their monitoring is relevant and poorly covered in current Ukrainian and foreign scientific studies. The necessity of complex solution method has been also determined. The purpose of this paper is to study the dynamics of surface water area over a 45-year period (over a long period of time) across  the Iziaslav district of Khmelnytsky on the  basis  of  programming analysis of satellite imagery and the results from field surveys at key research sites.

Geoinformation Technology For Cloudiness Analysis On The Territory Of Western Ukraine Using Satellite Images

Based on Earth observation data taken from satellites of the Landsat program and using the capabilities of the cloud platform Google Earth Engine the geoinformation technology of spatial analysis of cloudiness in the territory of Western Ukraine has been created. The distribution of cloudiness in the region is presented and the influence of the mountain range of the Carpathian Mountains on the main parameters of cloudiness is analyzed. The distribution of cloudiness densities in Lviv and Zakarpattya provinces is shown.

Application of satellite images for the estimation of forest inventory indices

Purpose.  Estimation of the state of forest stands using remote sensing data and statistical inventory data and the comparison of forest inventory indices with forest management materials. Methodology. Remote sensing data were used for the investigation of inventory indices. Inventory indices of forest stands of NNP “Skolivsky Beskydy” and ascertain edges of forest massif were done with Landsat ETM+ data (resolution 30 m) and Quick Bird data (resolution 0.6 m).
