    To explore the application potential of airborne point cloud and UAV visible light image in tree species identification and classification, a single-tree scale tree species classification and recognition method based on UAV hybrid fusion of multi-modal features and decision was proposed. Firstly, Kendall Rank correlation coefficient method and Permutation Importance (PI) were used for feature selection, and Efficient Low-Rank Multi-Mode Fusion Algorithm (LMF) was used to fuse the selected point cloud and visible image features. Ensemble learning was introduced to input point cloud, image, and fusion features into eXtreme Gradient Boosting (XGBoost), Light Gradient Boosting Machine (LightGBM), and Random Forest (RF) base classifiers integrated by Stacking. Finally, the meta classifier, Naive Bayes, is used for decision fusion. The experimental data show that the independent test accuracy of the proposed algorithm is 99.4%, which improves 22.58% compared with the Random Forest classifier by traditional feature concatenate fusion. In addition, the Kappa coefficient also increased by 28.54%. The comparison experiment with Convolutional Neural Network(CNN) shows that the proposed algorithm has obvious advantages in small sample training and better generalization ability.

    Speckle is an inherent property of SAR image, but its existence seriously interferes with the quality of SAR image and affects the high-quality application based on SAR image, so it is urgent to suppress it. The accuracy of the edge detection model of the traditional AD (Anisotropic Diffusion) filter still has room for improvement, and the noise suppression effect is often limited by the problem that it is difficult to accurately estimate the diffusion threshold. To solve the above problems, a novel AD filter based on Multidirectional Sobel (MSAD) is proposed. MSAD filter is an improved algorithm of SRAD. It builds a new edge detection model based on Multidirectional Sobel templates. Based on this, a new AD diffusion coefficient is established by integrating Gaussian kernel function, which can effectively solve the limitation of traditional AD diffusion coefficient by parameter estimation and improve the accuracy of speckle anisotropy suppression. Three real SAR images are selected for filtering experiments. In experiments, SRAD, DPAD, EnLee, and PPB filters are selected as the comparison algorithms; ENL, SSI, ESI, and M-Index are selected to evaluate the performance of proposed algorithms. Experiments show that MSAD filter can effectively improve the edge detection ability and obtain better speckle suppression effect.

    Water storage is a critical component of the global and regional hydrological cycle, which can be used to analyze the spatio-temporal evolution of regional water resources and drought. Traditional methods to monitor water storage are usually based on in-situ groundwater level data. However, challenges arise due to the limited placement and distribution of monitoring stations in large-scale research and exploration. The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite have provided large-scale monthly data on Earth's gravity field variation. Several scholars have applied the water storage anomalies data retrieved by GRACE in hydrology research, which has facilitated the progress and development of hydrology. However, the current systematic elaboration of research on inversion of water storage based on GRACE data is not comprehensive enough, and few studies have systematically summarized the status of monitoring drought, interpolation, and reconstruction based on GRACE data. Firstly, this study briefly introduces the application fields of GRACE data, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the two data processing methods. Then, the application status and existing problems of GRACE data in the verification and uncertainty of inversion results, terrestrial water storage anomalies, groundwater storage anomalies, drought evolution and response, and interpolation and reconstruction were analyzed and summarized. Finally, further research about GRACE was suggested to carry out in the aspects of exploring the impact of changing environments on water storage anomalies, reducing the uncertainty of GRACE data, constructing a suitable drought index for drought monitoring, improving the accuracy of interpolation and reconstruction, and improving spatio-temporal resolution. The study is aiming to provide reference and insight for related research using GRACE data.

    Global warming results that glaciers retreat rapidly. Monitoring and mapping glacier boundary are extremely significant for research on global climate change and predicting related disasters. However, snow covering is the main barrier all the time. Selecting Karakoram subregion as study area, the Landsat 8 OLI, and Senitnel-1 images and DEM data in spring (March 24th, 2019) were utilized. The spectral reflectance of green, red, near-infrared and short-wave infrared bands in Landsat 8 OLI images were selected as the optical image features. The backscattering coefficient of VH polarization channel, the coherence coefficient of VV polarization channel, local incident angle, polarization entropy H and scattering Angle α after polarization decomposition were gained from SAR data and used as SAR features. Topographic features included DEM and slope. These characters were employed as input of models. First, based on U-Net model, experiments compared the accuracies using different-size samples. The 256×256-pixel-size samples were imported to U-Net network model based on different backbone networks (MobileNetv2, VGGNet, ResNet and EfficientNet) and DeepLabv3+ model. Finally, the best one among the above networks was employed to import samples with different feature combinations. Results show: ①Using the bigger training sample with the richer spatial context information can obtain the higher segmentation accuracy and the glacier terminal boundary is more accurate. ②Among the different backbone networks, VGG19 backbone network exhibits the highest accuracy, which is higher than that of DeepLabv3+. Its F1-value is 0.899 6, and the mean intersection over union(mIoU) is 0.875 4, and the overall accuracy is 0.948 4. The recognition effect of shadow, snow melt-water, mist covering and frozen lake area is comparatively good. ③With the decrease in the number of training features, the accuracy also drops. Topographic features can improve the precision rate, while SAR features can increase the recall rate by 4% or so. This study proves the feasibility of the deep learning methods on the identification of mountain glaciers covered by a large amount of snow and provides reliable basis on model selection and parameters setting for rapid and large-scale mountain glaciers mapping.

    .CO2 is one of the important greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Since the Industrial Revolution,the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere has been increasing continuously, which has an important impact on global climate change. High precision,high coverage and high temporal and spatial resolution CO2data tends to be more significant in the study of carbon neutral and global CO2 change. Thus, in this study, we compared the XCO2 products between the satellites OCO-2 and OCO-3, and formed a joint data set from the two satellites. Because there are still some regions without observation data in the joint dataset, this study uses Kriging interpolation algorithm to fill the regions without data. Considering the temporal and spatial variation characteristics of CO2 concentration in different latitudes, the algorithm divides theworld into six regions and selects the appropriate variogram.The results show that the XCO2 data coverage increases by 52.32%, 46.77%, 44.04%, and 33.81% on the 3-day, 8-day, 15-day, and 30-day timescales,respectively. By comparing the monthly interpolation data set with the TCCON site data to verify the accuracy, the mean absolute error is 1.049 ppm, the root mean square error is 1.024 ppm, and the coefficient of determination is 0.82. It can be seen that this method can accurately fill in the blank area of the j-oint dataset, and improve the accuracy, coverage and spatiotemporal resolution of the data.

    The spatial distribution and winter wheat harvesting area is of great significance to accurately estimate production and ensure food security. However, the vast majority of study and statistical data is based on planting area of winter wheat, and few studies have been done on the winter wheat harvesting areas. In this study, Puyang County was selected as the study area, and the harvesting area of winter wheat was estimated by combining Sentinel-2 remote sensing imagery at the maturing period in 2019 and random forest model. Firstly, best feature subsets were obtained through feature selection. And then, the separability between winter wheat and other land types was analyzed by the J-M distance of these best feature subsets, the harvesting area and planting area of winter wheat were identified and extracted, and the harvesting area of winter wheat was mapped. Finally, the differences in harvesting area and planting area of winter wheat and the influencing factors of harvested area were further analyzed. The results found that the overall accuracy and Kappa coefficient of winter wheat harvested area estimated by the best feature subset of Sentinel-2 images were 94.62% and 0.93, respectively. The planting area of winter wheat in Puyang County in 2019 was 79.47 thousand hectares, and the extracted harvesting area was 76.74 thousand hectares, their difference (2.73 thousand hectares) was largely attributed to human activities, and timely monitoring of the harvesting area of winter wheat can provide a certain scientific reference value for related research and decision-making such as winter wheat yield prediction.

    In recent years, global warming has led to an increase in strong convective weather, and hail disaster has become one of the main disasters in agricultural production. Carrying out remote sensing assessment of cotton hail disaster is of great significance for disaster prevention and mitigation, insurance claims and planting structure adjustment. Taking the cotton hail disaster in the Kuitun River Basin in the southwest of Junggar Basin, Xinjiang, on 23 August, 2019 as the research object, with the support of field measured samples, the multi-temporal Sentinel-2 remote sensing images before and after the hail disaster were obtained. We analyzed the dynamic changes of various vegetation indexes before and after the hail disaster, and screened the sensitive vegetation index difference feature combinations which can effectively characterize the hail disaster. The range and grade of cotton hail disaster were automatically extracted by using machine learning algorithms such as logical regression, decision tree, gradient lifting decision tree and random forest, and the accuracy was compared and analyzed via field measured samples. The results showed that NDVI was the best indicator of hail disaster among single vegetation index, with an overall accuracy of 84.39% and a Kappa coefficient of 0.75. The combination of multi-temporal vegetation index differences was significantly more indicative for hail disaster than that of single vegetation index. Compared with the time series characteristics of vegetation index differences before and after hail disaster, the indicative of hail disaster between August 30 and August 20 was obviously stronger than that between August 25 and August 20, which indicated that it was necessary to consider the self-recovery ability of cotton plants after hail disaster grade for remote sensing monitoring. The combination of the pre- and post-disaster vegetation indices and the random forest classification algorithm was the most effective methods in monitoring the level of cotton hail disaster level, with an overall accuracy of 89.51% and a Kappa coefficient of 0.83. In conclusion, the extent and degree of cotton hail disaster can be effectively evaluated based on multi-temporal Sentinel-2 image.

    The Eastern Tianshan regions of Xinjiang were characterized by severe climate and exposed bedrock. The lithological boundaries were not accurate enough in the existing 1∶200 000 geological map, and the application of high-resolution remote sensing technology was lacked. GF-1 and Landsat 8 satellite images were used for lithology identification and geological mapping in Changji Area, Eastern Tianshan, Xinjiang. Image processing technology such as IHS and Gram-Schmidt were executed to obtain high spatial resolution images. And the image processing process was based on image enhancement using False Color Composite (FCC), Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Minimun Noise Fraction (MNF). Image interpretation markers were established by the combination of 3D image constructed from DEM data and available geological records. Additionally, an updated 1∶50 000 lithological map was generated for study area by fieldwork verification, sample thin section identification and reflectance spectrum characteristic analysis. The results showed that, in Changji area with good outcrop of bedrock, the integrated application of multi-source remote sensing data could identify the lithological units which were missed in the 1∶200 000 geological map and corrected the lithological boundaries. It improved the efficiency of geological mapping and guided the follow-up geological survey and geological prospecting.

The results showed that: (1) The AGBof S.alterniflora was significantly correlated with the 29 selected remote sensing variables, and the correlation coefficients were all between 0.5 and 0.8(P<0.01). (2) The model constructed by PLSR method was the optimal model of S.alterniflora AGB inversion in the Zhejiang coastal wetland (R2=0.767; RMSE=130.576 g/m2; MAE=100.801 g/m2). (3) The average AGB of S.alterniflora in Zhejiang coastal wetland was 6 607.01 g/m2, and the total AGB was 1.36×103 t. The distribution pattern of S.alterniflora AGB in the coastal area of Zhejiang Province was high in the south and low in the north. This study could provide the scientific basis for the rational development and utilization of coastal wetland resources, carbon sink monitoring, and ecosystem function evaluation.

    Surface deformation is a geological phenomenon caused by natural or artificial factors, and its disaster-causing process is slow and irreversible. It is also a geological disaster with destructive solid power. Therefore, real-time and high-precision surface deformation monitoring is one of the most critical tasks in maintaining urban safety. However, due to the complex causes, long duration, wide range, and many triggering factors of surface deformation, there are many difficulties in monitoring surface deformation using single technology such as leveling, GNSS, INSAR, and optical remote sensing. Considering the characteristics and complementarities of InSAR and GNSS, the combination of InSAR and BeiDou/GNSS can improve the surface deformation monitoring capability in space and time at the same time. Unluckily, the traditional GNSS-InSAR data fusion method is simple to fuse and cannot dynamically reflect surface deformation characteristics, leading to insufficient data use and low accuracy of deformation features. A new fusion method is proposed based on the Kalman filter algorithm GNSS-InSAR correction values. The method mainly consists of two sequential processes, i.e., the a priori processing of GNSS and INSAR data and the fusion process of GNSS-InSAR correction values based on the Kalman filter algorithm. The a priori processing of GNSS and INSAR data is to obtain the a priori deformation results using the fitted estimation model to correct the systematic errors in the InSAR observations. The fusion process of GNSS-InSAR correction values based on the Kalman filtering algorithm is to fuse the two data through Kalman filtering based on the spatial and temporal correlation between the time-series GNSS observations and the InSAR correction observations. The experiment was processed using 103 views of sentinel-1A data from November 15, 2018, to June 3, 2022, and 13 GNSS point data during the same period. The experimental results show that the fusion result of the corrected InSAR observations and GNSS observations by the Kalman filter is 45% more accurate than the fusion result of the uncorrected InSAR observations and the GNSS observations, which is 45% 57% higher than the accuracy of InSAR observations. Therefore, the fusion method model based on the Kalman filter algorithm of GNSS-InSAR corrected values proposed in this paper improves the accuracy of InSAR deformation monitoring and expands the breadth and depth of InSAR applications.

    The change of coastline affects the production and life of coastal residents and the national military strategic deployment. It is of great significance to detect the change of coastline quickly and accurately. Navigation X-band radar can continuously and real-time detect the nearshore marine environment. This paper proposes a method to detect coastline using navigation X-band radar images. Firstly, the navigation X-band radar image is preprocessed by averaging, contrast enhancement and Gaussian filtering to reduce the impact of sea clutter on the radar image; Then, the preprocessed image and the edge detection operator are convolved to obtain the gradient image, and an adaptive threshold estimation method based on the histogram bimodal method is established to automatically extract the boundary of the target island from the gradient image; Finally, the edge expansion, cavity filling and denoising are used to extract the complete island, and the area and perimeter of the island are estimated. The proposed method is verified by using the navigation X-band radar images observed in the experiment. Compared with the coastline in the electronic chart and Google Earth map, the edge accuracy of the target island extracted by Sobel operator and Prewitt operator is higher, and the area and perimeter of the extracted island vary with the tide height, sea conditions, etc. The results show that the navigation X-band radar can effectively monitor the real-time changes of the island coastline.

    Studying the topographic differentiation characteristics and driving mechanism of land use landscape pattern is of great significance for land use optimization and landscape dynamic management. Yongding District of Zhangjiajie City, with complex terrain, various types of coverage and tourism interference, was selected as the research object. The landscape type maps of multiple years in the study area were superimposed one by one with elevation, slope and aspect classification maps, and classified and counted. Eight landscape indices such as Patch Density(PD), Aggregation Index(AI), and contagion index(CONTAG) were selected from the landscape level index and type level index to calculate the annual change of the index and explore its topographic differentiation law and driving mechanism. The results show that : (1) The land use landscape types in the study area have obvious altitude gradient characteristics. More than 80 % of the land area is concentrated in the area with an altitude of 300 ~ 800 m and a slope of 6 ° ~ 35 °. (2) Whether the landscape level index or the type level index, the topographic differentiation characteristics are obvious, and the differentiation of elevation and slope is significantly higher than that of slope direction. (3) The evolution of land use landscape pattern in the area with large terrain gradient ( high altitude steep slope area ) is dominated by natural ecological evolution, while the evolution of the area with small terrain gradient ( low altitude gentle slope area ) is obviously disturbed by social and economic factors.

    The launch of the Gaofen-1 satellite has further enhanced China's Earth observation capabilities. Compared with Sentinel-2, the GF-1 WFV image has a high spatial resolution of 16 m, but lacks the Red-Edge (RE) band and the Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) band. It is important to analyze the differences in the accuracy of estimating vegetation physiological parameters between the two satellites for further application. In this study, we used linear regression models and a Look-Up Table (LUT) based on the PROSAIL model to assess the performance of GF-1 and Sentinel-2 in estimating LAI of soybean and maize. The results showed that: (1) The EVI simple linear regression of GF-1 outperformed other vegetation indices with a R2 value of 0.81 and the MNLIre model was the best Sentinel-2 model with a R2value of 0.86. (2) GF-1 obtained a comparable accuracy to Sentinel-2 with multiple linear regression models based on spectral bands. The best LAI estimation model of GF-1 produced a Root-Mean-Square Error (RMSE) of 0.54 and a coefficient of determination (R2 ) of 0.90, and the best Sentinel-2 model achieved a RMSE of 0.54 and R2 of 0.89. (3) In terms of LUT based on the PROSAIL model, the optimal band combination for GF-1 were B2 and B4 with a R2 of 0.76 and a RMSE of 0.81, and the optimal band combinations for Sentinel-2 were B3, B6, B7, B8, B8a, and B12 with a R2 of 0.87 and a RMSE of 0.62. This study showed that GF-1 satellite has the ability to accurately monitor crop LAI, which can provide a theoretical basis for the application of GF-1 in agriculture monitoring.

    As an important part of terrestrial ecosystems, vegetation is often used as an indicator to assess the effectiveness of climate change and ecological restoration. In this study, the Shiyang River Basin is taken as an example, Theil-Sen and Mann-Kendall models, and the Hurst index were used to analyze the change characteristics of vegetation cover. The correlation analysis, residual analysis and Geodetector were used to explore the influencing factors of vegetation cover change. The results showed that the vegetation NDVI demonstrated a fluctuating but upward trend from 2001 to 2020, with a rate of increase of 0.023/10 a. Areas with significant increased and significant decreased accounted for 72.32% and 2.4%, respectively. Areas with sustainability (Hurst>0.5) accounted for 63.84 % of the entire area, among which 47.37% showed continuously significant increasing trend. The correlation results between NDVI and climatic factors indicated that the impact of precipitation was particularly significant, and the impacts of temperature, solar radiation and saturated vapor pressure deficit were relatively weak. The area of NDVIpre showed a significant increase trend accounted for 21.59%, while the area of NDVIres showed a significant increase trend accounted for 60.07%, so interannual variation of NDVI in Shiyang River Basin was greatly affected by human activities. Geodetector results showed that the spatial distributation characteristics of water-heat conditions. It is noted that the spatial distribution of NDVI of cultivated land is greatly affected by population density. The results of this study are helpful to deepen the understanding of the driving factors of vegetation change and provide scientific reference for ecological protection and restoration of Shiyang River Basin.

    Regional target decomposition is a key part of remote sensing satellite imaging mission planning for large area coverage, which is of great significance to quickly acquire effective data in large area. Based on the planning experience of satellite photographing in large area, the main influencing factors in the actual operation of large area photographing are summarized, including satellite orbit transit, regional cloud cover at transit window and real-time update of base image data, and a large area photographing decomposition method based on multi-factor superposition is proposed. In this method, the cloud cover factor is applied to the decomposition of the strips in each transit window, and the better photographed strips in each satellite transit are obtained based on the idea of greedy algorithm, which can improve the single data acquisition efficiency and the overall coverage efficiency. This method has been applied to the project of "Data Cube for large coverage datasets of Chinese high resolution and broad band and multispectral satellite constellation", which provides support for Jilin-1 GP01/GP02 satellite to quickly acquire data in the 65 countries and regions along the Belt and Road. By comparing the acquisition of regional coverage data before and after using the method, the data coverage efficiency was improved by about 44%.

    Obtaining high-resolution image features of crops and exploring the influence of multi-feature learning on actual crop classification are of great significance for agricultural departments to grasp the information of crop planting fine structure and efficiently implement production management. For the high-resolution RGB image acquired by UAV, this paper proposes a new classification method of crops based on object-oriented and multi-feature learning. Firstly, the HSI model is used to transform the colour space of RGB images to mine the potential information of images further. Secondly, the ESP algorithm and CART are used to determine the optimal image segmentation scale and construct the optimal feature learning data set of classification. Finally, object-oriented Random Forest classification algorithm was used to learn and train the multi-feature space, so as to achieve fine crop classification, and accuracy evaluation was carried out in combination with validation data set. The experimental results show that the overall accuracy of the classification in the study area reached 90.18%, and the Kappa coefficient reached 0.877, both of which were greater than the accuracy based on pixel-level and single-feature learning. The optimal feature learning space constructed in this paper have a good classification effect on cotton, corn, cocozelle, grape and other major crops in the study area. The producer's accuracy of each crop type is greater than 89%. This research can provide a reference for agricultural precision management and planting structure optimization.

    As the functions of urban areas become more and more complicated, it is of great significance to identify the specific function types of urban blocks scientifically and accurately. This paper presents a time-series dynamic urban functional area recognition scheme. Taking the area within the Sixth Ring Road of Beijing as the research area, the high incidence area of travel mode is extracted from the massive travel data by using taxi trajectory data and Dynamic Topic Model (DTM). Urban blocks are clustered based on topic model feature. The research use POI semantic annotation clustering results to identify urban functional areas. This paper studies and evaluates the change trend and distribution of topic blocks during six years, and discusses the dynamic changes of semantics of blocks: (1) The dynamic topics distribution has spatial diffusion, and the distribution of block semantic intensity shows obvious circle expansion. (2) The spatial boundary of clusters based on travel activities gradually coincides with the administrative divisions of the study area over time, and the function labeling results are highly matched with the specific functions of the area. (3) The high value of topic variation value is mainly distributed in the outer ring area, and has a negative correlation with the proportion of construction land. This research shows that the dynamic topic model is applicable in the travel data mining scenario, providing a new reference direction for the application of dynamic topic model in the field of mobile data mining.

    Remote sensing images have low detection accuracy due to the characteristics of different object angles, generally arranged densely, high proportion of small objects and complex background. In view of the inapplicability of the horizontal detection algorithm for remote sensing rotating object detection, and the periodicity and edge interchangeability of angle in the mainstream five-parameter method, a VR-CenterNet is proposed, which used the vector representation to detect the rotating box and design the loss function to avoid the problem of angle regression, and to optimize the high displacement sensitive problem of slender objects. For the high redundancy problem of shallow feature fusion, self-adaptive channel activation is introduced to automatically filter impurity information. In order to strengthen the key point information, an improved global contextual self-adaptive layer activation attention block is introduced in the output of backbone. First, the performance of different algorithms is compared on HRSC2016 and UCAS-AOD data sets. Then, the module ablation experiment is conducted on the two data sets to verify the effectiveness of each improved method. Experimental results show that: 88.48% and 90.35% accuracy are obtained on HRSC2016 and UCAS-AOD data sets respectively. The improved algorithm can improve the detection accuracy of remote sensing rotating objects, and provide another problem-solving idea for the accurate detection of remote sensing rotating objects.

    Based on the TensorFlow framework, which has the characteristics of GPU or CPU parallel acceleration calculation on tensor (multidimensional arrays). The WGS84 latitude and longitude projection is selected, combined with FY-3D MERSI L1 data with high-precision and same-resolution positioning data, to generated tensors (multidimensional array) to align latitude and longitude data according to resolution, and calculated the new image pixel mapping position information. According to the position index information, the MERSI data can be geometric corrected point by point, and the BowTie effect caused by the scanning observation and earth curvature of medium-resolution polar orbit satellites can be eliminated at the same time. Finally, the convolution is used to calculate the inverse distance weighted interpolation point values and fill the pixels with no data after geometric correction. Using this method, the author implemented geometric correction of all 25 channels of FY-3D MERSI data in Python under the TensorFlow framework. Compared with the geometric correction results with ENVI software as the standard. The error and correction precision are calculated, and the overall processing speed of geometric correction is also tested. The results show that the algorithm proposed in this paper has a high consistency with the geometric correction of ENVI software, and the accuracy below 5% absolute error percentage is greater than 0.92, and the structural similarity SSIM index is around 0.95. Speedup is more than 36 times to complete geometric correction for all channels using GPU parallel acceleration. In summary, the geometric correction method adopted in this paper is fast and efficient in processing, and ensures the accuracy of correction.

    Satellite precipitation products with a high spatio-temporal resolution are essential for hydrometeorological research on the regional or watershed scale. By comparing the accuracy of IMERG and GSMaP satellite precipitation products in the Yangtze River basin during 2015~2020, the outperformed product is then used for spatial downscaling. Considering the relationship between precipitation and geographic features (DEM), vegetation index (NDVI), and Land Surface Temperature (LST), various statistical downscaling models based on random forest regression are developed, such as DEM model, DEM+NDVI model and DEM+NDVI+LST model. Then, the performance of the three models is further evaluated against observations from 133 stations in the study area. The results indicate GSMaP outperforms IMERG in the Yangtze River basin. Among the three downscaling models, DEM+NDVI+LST model performs best on the multi-year mean scale and annual scale, and the performance of the model remains stable on the monthly scale. This study can provide a new way for spatial downscaling of satellite precipitation products.

    UAV remote sensing technology can quickly obtain the Canopy Height Model(CHM) of the survey area. How to identify tree vertices more accurately from CHM is key to tree height extraction. This paper discusses the influence of different window types, window sizes, and stand canopy density on the extraction of tree vertices. Using the university campus as the study area, two local areas of dense and sparse forest land were selected based on canopy density. GIS rectangular neighborhood analysis, GIS circular neighborhood analysis, and local maximum algorithm are used to extract tree vertices. The results show that the accuracy of tree vertex extraction is not only affected by the window size and canopy density, but also closely related to the window type, and the result of GIS rectangular neighborhood analysis to extract tree vertices is more stable and accurate, and the highest F-Measure value is 78.13% in dense forest, and 96.94% in sparse forest. Comparing the extracted tree heights corresponding to the tree vertices obtained based on this result with the tree height values measured in the field, the RMSE is 37cm for dense forest and 39cm for sparse forest. The results proved the feasibility of extracting tree heights of broad-leaved forests with higher canopy density based on the visible light remote sensing technology of small UAVs, which provided a reference for the subsequent identification of tree vertices based on the canopy height model and improved the accuracy of tree height extraction.

    Some of the data of the second Chinese glacier inventory(CGI2.0) are replaced by the first Chinese glacier inventory, and these data are concentrated in southeastern Tibetan Plateau. Where the terrain is steep, the climate is harsh, and it is covered by clouds all the year round. There is no systematic glacier survey due to the inability to obtain effective optical images. Aiming at the problems that the traditional threshold segmentation method is influenced by noise, and the standard Unet has a large amount of computation, which leads to slow operation, compressedUnet model is designed to improve model training efficiency and glacier extraction accuracy by modifying model parameters such as sample size, number of convolution kernel and optimizer. Using the polarization characteristics and topographic features of glaciers, 45-scene ENVISAT ASAR images and NASA DEM are selected to carry out deep learning based on Unet and compressed Unet. By referring to optical images and other auxiliary data, the misclassified and missed glaciers are visually interpreted one by one. Finally, the extraction and correction of the glacier boundaries without update are completed, and their attributes are updated. The results show that deep learning based on SAR images and topographic features can effectively identify glaciers in cloud-covered areas. In the areas where the CGI2.0 is not completed, there are 8 374 glaciers with a total area of 5 622.65±303.58 km2, and the error accounts for 5.4% of the total glacier area, most glaciers are retreating and fragmenting. The dataset updates the alternative data in CGI2.0, and provides reliable data support for related studies of glacier changes and mass balance in southeastern Tibetan Plateau.

    To reveal the long-term variation trend of vegetation cover and further determine the main climatic driving factors affecting vegetation variation in Hainan Island. Also, to provide scientific evidence related to the impact of climate change on vegetation and scientific basis for achieving vegetation optimum development in island regions. The spatiotemporal variation trend of vegetation in Hainan Island from 1982 to 2015 was explored by applying trend analysis method to the GIMMS NDVI data. The effects of temperature, precipitation, and solar radiation on vegetation variability in Hainan Island were investigated by partial correlation analysis and principal component regression analysis over the 34 years. Results show that: ①Spatially, vegetation exhibited a significant increasing trend in the northern and coastal regions of Hainan Island while displayed a degeneration trend in Sanya city and its surrounding areas. ②Temporally, we found the vegetation in Hainan Island showed a slowly increased trend in most areas with a speed of 0.019/10 a and its intra-annual variability was obvious. ③In general, temperature and solar radiation jointly dominate the vegetation growth in 88% areas of Hainan Island in a significant way. Solar radiation was the most important climate driving factor to control vegetation variability in Hainan Island, followed by temperature, and precipitation had a small impact on the vegetation variability. ④Temperature dominated the vegetation variability in the northern and western areas of the Hainan Island. By contrast, solar radiation dominated the vegetation variability in the southern areas of the Hainan Island. Precipitation was the dominant climate driving factor to explain the variability of forests in the middle of the Hainan Island. Overall, this study found that temperature and solar radiation were two major climate driving factors which affected vegetation growth in the Hainan Island.

    The vegetation greening period is one of the important stages in the vegetation growth process, so it is of great significance to explore the change of vegetation greening period and its influencing factors. At present, there are few studies that combine snow cover with temperature and precipitation to explore the influencing mechanism of vegetation greening period. Therefore, based on MODIS NDVI, snow cover products and ERA-5 reanalysis data, this paper adopts the Logistic curve curvature extreme value method, trend analysis, correlation analysis and sensitivity analysis of accumulated NDVI. To explore the spatio-temporal variation of vegetation greening period in Mongolia Plateau from 2001 to 2018 and its response mechanism to climate, snow cover and soil water change. The main results show that the average greening period of the Mongolian plateau in recent 18 years is about 123d, and the overall trend is not significantly delayed. The earliest greening stage was found in the southwest region and the Greater Khingan Mountains, and the latest was found in the Sayan Mountains and Hangai Mountains. The regions with significant positive correlation with snow cover, snow cover date and snow cover total day were all >30%, while the regions with significant negative correlation with temperature during snowmelt period were >25%, and the correlations with precipitation, soil moisture and snow cover first day were weak. The results showed that snow cover had a significant effect on the greening stage of vegetation, and its factor sensitivity was ranked as follows: snow cover (0.467) > snow cover date (0.184) > temperature during snowmelt period (0.113) > snow cover day (0.028).

    Sichuan is one of the regions with frequent extreme precipitation in China. Based on the grid precipitation dataset (CMPA) provided by China Meteorological Administration as the reference of surface precipitation. We systematically evaluated the accuracy of extreme precipitation monitoring in Sichuan province by using a variety of extreme precipitation index including GSMaP (NRT, MVK, Gauge) and IMERG (Early, Late, Final) satellite precipitation products. The results are as follows: (1) The frequency and intensity of extreme precipitation in the basin and its surrounding areas are significantly higher than those in other areas. There is an obvious boundary line of extreme precipitation along the basin and the plateau. (2) IMERG products can detect rainstorm, continuous precipitation events and drought events more accurately, of which Final product have the highest precision, and the precision of extreme precipitation index of IMERG products is significantly better than GSMaP. (3) The results of probability density distribution function (PDF) show that the PDF characteristics of IMERG-Final products and CMPA are the most similar, followed by GSMaP-Guage, However, the Gauge product corrected by the site completely changed the PDF characteristics of NRT and MVK, ignoring many heavy rain and rainstorm events, which will be extremely unfavorable to the monitoring of extreme precipitation. In general, the detection accuracy of GPM products for extreme precipitation has great regional differences. IMERG products show higher extreme precipitation detection accuracy than GSMaP. We also found that there are large precipitation errors in IMERG and GSMaP products in the Western Sichuan Plateau with complex terrain.

    Namcha Barwa region is located in the core tectonic deformation zone of the Eastern Himalayan Syntaxis with a complicated geological-tectonic environment and frequent geohazards. Therefore, it is of great significance to strengthen the research of surface deformation monitoring in this area for local disaster prevention and mitigation and sustainable economic development. This study aims to monitor surface deformation using Sentinel-1 SAR images in this region. Using PS-InSAR technique, the surface deformation rates distribution and deformation time series on LOS (Line-Of-Sight) were acquired. Then the status of surface deformation distribution and coseismic deformation caused by Mainling M6.9 earthquake in 2017 were discussed. It is revealed that the deformation in Namcha Barwa is greatly affected by Cenozoic tectonic deformation. Tectonic deformation in the study area mainly included coseismic deformation, postseismic relaxation deformation and thrust deformation in plate boundary. The deformations were quite different on both sides of the Yarlung Zangbo River. A slow negative deformation trend is shown on the north side, while the south side is positive deformed at a high rate caused by thrust faults. The coseismic deformation of Mainling earthquake showed a spatial distribution trait of negative deformation on the southeast side of the epicenter, positive deformation on the northeast side, positive and a larger deformation on the southwest side. This study demonstrated that, InSAR can provide high spatial and temporal resolution surface deformation data for hazard monitoring and scientific research on Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

    Burned area is one of the main parameters required for research such as global changes and carbon cycles. Accurate monitoring of burned area is of great significance for improving the accuracy of fire risk warning and risk assessment. This research used three MODIS satellite data products to assess their accuracy in estimating the annual and multi-year extent (2001 to 2016) of burned areas of the eastern Mongolian Plateau. The analysis used 30 m Resolution Global Annual Burned Area Map (GABAM) product as a reference dataset to evaluate monitoring accuracy of three MODIS burned area products referred to as MCD45A1, MCD64A1, and FireCCI51. Respectively, these products recorded 327, 160, and 71 fires in 2015. Only 40 fires were jointly monitored by three products. Monitoring areas of 27 082.46 km2, 17 227.62 km2, and 19 526.47 km2 overlapped to give a cumulative area of 6 896.99 km2. Compared with reference data, the three products gave a composite accuracy F1 score ranging from 0.96 to 0.02 indicating relatively uneven monitoring rates. Over a three-year time scale (2013~2015), the data products gave average composite accuracy scores of 0.70, 0.62, and 0.60 so as to rank the products as MCD45A1>FireCCI51>MCD64A1. On the multi-year (2001~2016) time scale, monitoring rates of the three products were 61%, 59%, and 50% ranking products as MCD64A1>MCD45A1>FireCCI51.

    Sea ice classification using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images is a crucial aspect of sea ice monitoring. Existing methods have mainly relied on spatial features of SAR images, but rarely consider temporal features, which can potentially provide additional information. A novel approach called SE-ConvLSTM has been developed to combine both spatial and temporal features for sea ice SAR image classification. Firstly, ConvLSTM is used to extract the spatial-temporal features of HH and HV polarization SAR images respectively. Then, the spatial-temporal features of different layers and channels are concatenated, and the channel feature response is adaptive recalibrated by using SE channel attention. Finally, SoftMax function is used for image classification. To evaluate the effectiveness of the SE-ConvLSTM method, six time-step image blocks of SI-STSAR-7 dataset were used for comparison with other classification methods. The results indicate that SE-ConvLSTM achieved an overall accuracy of 97.06% and 90.01% for the thick one-year ice which is difficult to classify. This suggests that adding temporal information can significantly improve classification accuracy. Additionally, the proposed network has better recognition ability for regions with low density of main ice types and for boundary positions of SAR images, making it an effective tool for generating sea ice distribution maps.

    Based on Sentinel-2 remote sensing data, we selected three methods, including Supervised Classification (Maximum Likelihood Classification), Machine Learning Classification (Random Forest Classification) and Phenological Feature Classification based on time-series NDVI, to extract Potamogeton crispus in Nansi Lake in early May 2021. By using the measured area and distribution data of the Potamogeton crispus L. community in Nansi Lake, we analyzed the classification accuracy of the three methods during the same period, and analyzed the extraction effects of the three methods for Potamogeton crispus L. in combination with the Fractional Vegetation Cover (FVC). The results showed that (1) there was a significant difference in the total area of the Potamogeton crispus L. extracted by three methods. The areas of the Potamogeton crispus L. community extracted by both Supervised Classification and Random Forest Classification were less than 100 km2, which were 98.97 km2 and 75.92 km2 respectively. While the area extracted by the time-series NDVI method was 207.44 km2, which was closest to the measured area of Potamogeton crispus L. (2) Both the whole lake and the core area, the extraction accuracy of Supervised Classification and Random Forest Classification was just about 75%, the Mean Relative Error (MRE) was about 0.5, and Mean Error (MEarea) was about 20~30 km2, while the accuracy of the time-series NDVI method was above 90% and the MRE and MEarea were also the lowest. (3) Comparing the fractional vegetation cover, we found that Supervised Classification and Random Forest Classification could only extract the Potamogeton crispus L. with high fractional vegetation cover near the lake shore and poorly with low cover in the lake core area, while the time-series NDVI method was more sensitive to the low fractional vegetation cover Potamogeton crispus L. community and could extract it well in different areas of the whole lake, which is a potential method for Potamogeton crispus L. remote sensing extraction. This study has some theoretical value for innovative remote sensing extraction methods of submerged vegetation and guiding remote sensing monitoring of lake ecological environment.

    Fractional Vegetation Cover (FVC) is an important index to evaluate the quality of ecological environment and characterize the ground cover and growth status of vegetation. There are many FVC products at home and abroad. However, different FVC products have certain spatio-temporal differences. In order to accurately understand the differences of FVC products and their causes, two global FVC products, GEOV3 and GLASS, were selected to assess their spatial and temporal differences in southwest China by resampling and difference analysis, and to analyze the influence of topography and land use type on FVC products by combining topographic and land use data. The results show that: (1) there were obvious spatial and temporal differences between GLASS and GEOV3 products with seasonal characteristics, with GLASS FVC values slightly lower than GEOV3 FVC values in spring and summer, and the smallest difference between the two values in autumn, while GLASS FVC values were significantly higher than GEOV3 FVC values in winter; (2) the values of the two products differed significantly in different land use types, and the differences were: shrub > forest > cropland > grassland > other, and the differences were the largest in winter; (3) the values of the two products also differed significantly in different slopes and altitudes, and the changes in slope had more obvious effects on the products. This study revealed the influencing factors that lead to inconsistency among FVC products, which can provide a reference for the improvement of FVC product generation algorithms in mountainous areas.

    As black and odorous water bodies in rural areas have negative influence to environment, it is important to monitor the rural black and odorous water bodies by high resolution remote sensing. While, the spectral curve from remote sensing of rural black and odorous is similar to some vegetation, green roofs and greenhouses, which bring difficulties to identify the rural black and odorous in remote sensing images with satisfactory repeatability and accuracy, and automation, by using the color purity on a Commission Internationale de L’Eclairage (CIE) model and spectroscopic method. Thus, we collected and interpreted 325 rural black and odorous water bodies by GF1/2/6, covering several counties in Xi’an and including various type of polluted object, to train the model using DeeplabV3+ with ResNet101 as the backbone to identify the rural black and odorous water bodies, in which we imported the Efficient Channel Attention (ECA) and pre-processed the samples by increasing the brightness and correcting the color difference. The F1-score, MIoU (Mean Intersection over Union), IoU (Intersection over Union) and FOR (False Omission Rate) of the model were 0.931, 0.935, 0.935 and 0.085 respectively, which indicated that the model could efficiently, accurately, and repeatedly identify rural black and odorous water bodies from high-resolution remote sensing images and offer assistance for government departments to regulate rural black and odorous water bodies.
