    Abstract: Geographic Information Systems and spatial interpolation are the most often used geographic sciences for spatial analysis and visualization of temperature to use in hydrological studies. According to dependency of nature of thermal bands data to temperature, using thermal remote sensing images as auxiliary data can be useful in air temperature spat... Show More

    Abstract: Human interference through various activities such as road construction, mineral exploration, lumbering, excavation and rural-urban migration has placed a high demand on the availability of land for agriculture and exposed croplands to extensive degradation and erosion. This study therefore aims at determining the cover-crop management factor (C) f... Show More

    Abstract: Due to its location and multiple uses, Nokoué Lake, is subject to multiple attacks impairing water quality. The present work aims at assessing the water quality index (WQI) on this surface water, by monitoring twenty sampling locations for a period of rainy and dry season in 2016. For calculating the WQI, seven parameters, namely, pH, dissolved oxy... Show More
