Abstract

Wetlands proportionally exert a higher influence on biogeochemical fluxes among the land, the atmosphere, and hydrologic systems than their 1% worldwide occurrence suggests [1]. Although their frequency of occurrence is low and their importance is high, wetlands continue to face high detrimental pressures from natural and human-induced forces [2]. Remote sensing offers the single best source of timely, synoptic wetland status and trends information at a variety of spatial and temporal scales [3].
