📢 NEW PAPER! #PaperThread #SciComm

Master’s student @samherniman recently published an article about avian habitat suitability in Remote Sensing Applications: Society and Environment. Sam has written this thread summarizing his findings...

In general, when a habitat has more #birds, it also has more of all living things. In scientific terms, we say that birds are good surrogates or indicators of #biodiversity.

2/18
This is excellent, because counting birds is really easy. Many of them sing or call. So, we can do a field survey of birds in a habitat and use that number to find a relative count of all biodiversity.

more birdsong ≈ more birds ≈ more biodiversity

Parts of this #wildfire🔥 are burning so intensely, they are visible in a normal RGB (4-3-2) image, as can be seen here. Intensely burning wildfire in Russia Copernicus/Pierre Markuse

🔴(Thread) How to explore the #NSWbushfires 🔥 yourself? Use the #EOBrowser to search recent images in the affected areas. When you've found a #bushfire, export a true color image such as this one. ➡️apps.sentinel-hub.com/eo-browser/?la… #NSWbushfires #RemoteSensing #OpenData #scicomm 1/6
Once you have done that, you can use the False color (Urban) visualization to go further, peek through the smoke and detect hot spots with possible active fires like in this image here. It also makes the burn scar more visible. ➡️ apps.sentinel-hub.com/eo-browser/?la… 2/6
Additionally you can then use the SWIR visualization to even better show the burned areas, which show up in reddish tones. Take a look at this image. ➡️ apps.sentinel-hub.com/eo-browser/?la… 3/6

Dilemma: I can't stop myself from having mixes feelings about posts like these. On the one hand, great to advocate the power of #RemoteSensing and open datasets like @CopernicusEU. On the other hand, people expect this kind of quality for the South of Ghana as well. 1/
Most remotesensing marketing stuff is about:
* Moving gletsjers
* Wildfires
* Agriculture in the Noordoostpolder
* Crazy stuff in desert environments (no clouds)

So, great, but let's also show where the challenges are. And how we can help each other overcome those. 2/
Note to self: don't persist in being a bitter asshole, come up with some upsides and positive examples.

Self: well noted, working on it. /3

(Not really sure how these Twitter threads work ...)
