The objective of this study is to evaluate the potential of multiangular SAR data at C-band for soil parameters' discrimination over bare agricultural fields. In order to exploit the incidence angle diversity to enhance the soil parameter retrievals, the conventional multiangular roughness descriptor ΔHH formulated originally as the backscattering ...
Decontamination practice reduced radiocesium concentrations in both soil and tadpoles that suggests reduction of radiocesium of soil can propagate to biota in rice paddies.
The objective of this work was to assess the impact of pesticide application to non-target soil organisms simulating what happens following pesticide application in agricultural fields and thus obtaining higher realism on results obtained. For that purpose, three commercial formulations containing the insecticides chlorpyrifos and endosulfan and th...

The introduction of genetically modified organisms (GMO) in many countries follows strict regulations to ensure that only safety-tested products are marketed. Over the last few years, targeted approaches have been complemented by profiling methods to assess possible unintended effects of transformation. Here we used a commercial (Affymertix) microa...
To evaluate the effect of human activities on the amount of nitrogen (N) transported to the Three Gorges Dam (TGD), we have developed and applied a model to estimate the riverine N transport from watersheds draining into the upper Changjiang River basin. By using this model and a database of agricultural statistics, we study the temporal and spatia...
