Concluding remarks l.jpg
Concluding remarks semi-arid areas

  • The use of remote sensing techniques for water resources management in Brazil is far behind of other applications.

    • 1) lack of cloud free remote sensing data at a time frequency compatible to the water resource monitoring needs;

    • 2) lack of human resources capable of coupling with the complexity of remote sensing applications to water resources.
