Recognized and advocated as a powerful tool, the role of remote sensing in identifying, mapping, and monitoring soil salinity and salinization will continue to expand. Remote Sensing of Soil Salinization: Impact on Land Management delineates how to combine science and geospatial technologies for smart environmental management. Choose the Right Techniques for the Job An overview of soil salinity assessment using remote sensing technologies, the book describes a variety of sensors, ranging from ground-based to airborne and satellite-borne, and their use in a diversity of geographical regions and environmental settings from coastal to inland saline areas. It provides guidance on how to identify and choose the right remote sensing tools and data sets required based on the purpose of the study and the environmental setting. Organized into three sections, the book covers: Section I: Soil Salinity and Remote Sensing: The Object and the Tool — Focuses on the relationships between the landscape-object salinity and the remote sensing tools Section II: Trends in Mapping Soil Salinity and Monitoring Salinization Using Remote and Proximal Sensing — Provides a variety of case studies dealing with soil salinity mapping and monitoring the process of salinization Section III: Diversity of Approaches to Modeling Soil Salinity and Salinization — Demonstrates the diversity of approaches used in modeling soil salinity and salinization in space and time Combines Fundamentals, the Latest Technology, and Practical Examples The book includes analyses of basic issues of remote detection, such as the spectral behavior of salt types and vegetation influence, and evaluations of currently available remote sensing platforms delineating their advantages and disadvantages. The accompanying CD-ROM provides color images that enhance the material discussed in the text. The mixture of fundamental concepts, latest technological reviews, and practical application examples makes this an ideal resource for environmental assessment and decision making.

The complex issues involved in the management of saline and sodic turfgrass soils are enough to perplex even the most experienced site manager — there is no "silver bullet" amendment, treatment, or grass for salinity management. Best Management Practices for Saline and Sodic Turfgrass Soils: Assessment and Reclamation presents comprehensive scientific principles and detailed, practical management and assessment recommendations for turfgrass and landscape sites. The authors use the Best Management Practices (BMPs) concept, considered the gold-standard management approach for any individual environmental issue, since it is a whole ecosystem (holistic), science-based salinity management approach that allows all possible management options to be considered and implemented on a site-specific basis. They identify BMP strategies, including irrigation system design; irrigation scheduling and salinity leaching; chemical, physical, and biological amendments; cultivation; topdressing; soil modification; sand-capping; surface and subsurface drainage options; nutritional practices; additional cultural practices; and ongoing monitoring. The book presents emerging challenges, technology, and concepts that address integration of salinity management into comprehensive site environmental or sustainable management systems, use of halophytic turfgrasses for non-traditional purposes, integration of geospatial and geostatistical concepts and technology, and integration of new sensor technology into daily management paradigms. Outlining a holistic BMP approach, the book incorporates scientific principles and practical management recommendations and details specific salinity challenges and the logic behind each BMP strategy for salinity management, with an emphasis on actual field problems. The book is formatted for flexible use, with stand-alone chapters that include outlines for quick review of a topic for those requiring only a basic understanding as well as in-depth discussions of the science and practical aspects for those seeking a more rigorous treatment. It supplies a single source for all the information required to identify and manage diverse types of salinity stresses.

В монографии приведены результаты исследования почвенного покрова и засоленности почв Джаныбекского стационара и его окрестностей (Волгоградская область (Россия) / Западный Казахстан) на основе сопряженного анализа наземной и дистанционной информации. Описаны разработанные автором методические подходы к составлению цифровых почвенных карт «с нуля» на основании автоматизированного дешифрирования детальных космических снимков и с учетом антропогенного использования территории. Методика разрабатывалась на территории Джаныбекского стационара и была апробирована на ключевых участках в Калмыкии. Дана подробная характеристика природных условий Северного Прикаспия. В приложении к монографии приводятся все аналитические материалы с привязкой GPS, полученные в ходе выполнения научно-исследовательской работы на Джаныбекском стационаре. Подходы, описанные в монографии, могут быть полезны при решении ряда научных и практических задач, таких как оценка процессов опустынивания и воздействия изменения климата, учет и инвентаризация целинных и сельскохозяйственных земель, организация мониторинга почвенного покрова.

In this study, satellite remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) techniques were used to analyze the agricultural performance and sustainability of the Bhakra Irrigation System in India. The results demonstrate the synergy possible from applying satellite remote sensing and GIS to evaluate trends in rising water tables and salinity, which are two important threats to the sustainability of irrigation systems, and the cost-effectiveness of these techniques as diagnostic tools for irrigation system improvement.
