Ecuador’s mangrove forest carbon stocks: A spatiotemporal analysis of living carbon holdings and their depletion since the advent of commercial aquaculture
In this paper we estimate the living carbon lost from Ecuador’s mangrove forests since the advent of export-focused shrimp aquaculture. We use remote sensing techniques to delineate the extent of mangroves and aquaculture ...
Creation of a high spatiotemporal resolution global database of continuous mangrove forest cover for the 21st Century (CGMFC-21)
Aim: To provide high-resolution local, regional, national and global estimates of annual mangrove forest area from 2000 through to 2012 with the goal of driving mangrove research questions pertaining to biodiversity, carbon ...
Mangrove forest cover and change in the mangrove biome
TEOW. This raster dataset represents mangrove forest cover and mangrove forest change annually from 2000 – 2012 inclusive. The attribute value is m2 (stored as a 16 bit unsigned integer value) of mangrove cover for each ...
Mangrove forest cover and loss since 2000 in areas with year 2000 mangrove forest
MFW. This raster dataset represents mangrove forest cover and mangrove forest change annually from 2000 – 2012 inclusive. The attribute value is m2 (stored as a 16 bit unsigned integer value) of mangrove cover for each ...
Titling community land to prevent deforestation: An evaluation of a best-case program in Morona-Santiago, Ecuador
Assigning land title to collective landholders is one of the primary policies land management agencies use to avoid deforestation worldwide. Such programs are designed to improve the ability of landholders to legally exclude ...
A geospatial methodology to identify locations of concentrated runoff from agricultural fields
A geospatial methodology has been developed that utilizes high resolution lidar-derived DEMs to help track runoff from agricultural fields and identify areas of potential concentrated flow through vegetated riparian areas ...
Assessing the role of commercial aquaculture in displacing mangrove forest
To fill a gap in the marine science literature, I calculated the amount of mangrove deforestation in tropical estuaries that is attributable to commercial aquaculture. The eight countries analyzed were Indonesia, Brazil, ...
UAS Air Photos of Lake Victoria (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania)
This project investigates the dynamic links between the ecology of Lake Victoria (a natural system), the economy of its surrounding fisheries (a human system), and the bridge between these systems created by aquaculture. ...
