10th International Conference on Industrial Ecology
In this presentation, the characteristics of different consumer segments and their carbon footprints will be examined based on the analysis of consumer expenditure and time-use survey data. It utilises anonymised survey microdata and carbon intensity from existing EEIOA databases and focuses on in-depth analysis of the relationships between...
In Remote Sensing
With the advent of high-spatial resolution (HSR) satellite imagery, urban land use/land cover (LULC) mapping has become one of the most popular applications in remote sensing. Due to the importance of context information (e.g., size/shape/texture) for classifying urban LULC features, Geographic Object-Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) techniques are...
Climate Change Symposium: Changing By Degrees Multidisciplinary Approaches to Climate Change
Household consumption in the United States has significant impacts on climate change through the consumption of food, mobility, housing, consumer goods, leisure, and others. Consumer lifestyles and their climate change impacts vary significantly across consumer segments due to their household characteristics, and how they spend money and time. In...

In ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information
A new method was developed for mapping forest, agricultural, and urban land cover using remote sensing imagery. It is designed to better detect small land cover objects (e.g. small forest or agricultural patches) and monitor their change (e.g. fine-scale deforestation) using freely-available satellite imagery.
