  • Identifying priority areas for reforestation using remote sensing and geographical information systems: a case study from Turkey

    This study uses Landsat 7 ETM and IKONOS satellite data to estimate the priority areas for reforestation in a forest management planning unit of Turkey. Three important parameters, crown closure, slope and soil moisture, were used to identify potential reforestation areas. The existing crown closure classes were obtained from the forest stand type map of the study area. Slope map of the study ...

Given the fact that deforestation is a complex process, these factors might have contributed to the problem with deforestation in the late 1980s. However, the massive forest exploitation and excessive annual ...
