Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print and on CD-ROM. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique, consistent, permanent citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages. Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit CID Number.

Authors

Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

Introduction

This proceedings volume contains papers presented during the conference on Remote Sensing for Agriculture, Ecosystems, and Hydrology. The conference was part of the International Symposium on Remote Sensing sponsored by SPIE. The symposium was held at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 22–25 September 2014.

The conference is dedicated to providing rapid dissemination of scientific and technical information, and attracted scientists and professionals from throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Approximately 48 oral and 19 poster presentations were given, covering a broad range of topics in the field of remote sensing applications in environmental science.

The program was organized according to major themes, with 12 sessions on Agriculture: Crop Yield Monitoring; Surface Characterization; Monitoring of Rangeland and Forests; Change Detection and Vegetation Monitoring; Microwave and Radar Applications; Thermal Infrared Remote Sensing; High-Resolution Remote Sensing: Spatial and Spectral. Hydrology: Energy Balance and Evapotranspiration (2) and Water Resources (2).

The technical session “Utilization and Validation of RS Observations and Tools for Hydrology, Agriculture, and Flood Mapping and Modelling”, was included as a joint session of the 9239 Program. We extent our thanks to Dr. Shahid Habib, from NASA Goddard Space Flight Ctr. (United States) for organizing and chairing this session.

The poster presentations also had good representation from the above-mentioned themes. The presentations described both fundamental and applications-based research activities including modelling, laboratory and field experiments, and operational applications.

We extend our gratitude to Dr. Massimo Menenti of Technische Univ. Delft (Netherlands) for chairing one of the Sessions; and to Dr. Carmelo Cammalleri (European Commission Joint Research Ctr., Italy), Dr. Wim G.M. Bastiaanssen and Dr. Massimo Menenti of Technische Univ. Delft (Netherlands) for giving three invited presentations on important topics. Our appreciation and gratitude goes also to the presenters for their efforts and to the participants for their insightful questions and discussions. Special thanks are also due to the host city for the excellent venue and to SPIE staff, and all the SPIE organizational staff for their support prior to, during and after the symposium. We look forward to an even more successful conference in 2015.
