Fire activity on drylands and floodplains in the southern Okavango Delta, Botswana
(Elsevier; http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/622855/description#description, 2006-05-08)
Satellite imagery derived fire history data for the southern Okavango Delta, Botswana from 1989 to 2003 were used to analyse the temporal and spatial distribution of fires and to assess changes in fire activity. Maximum ...
Simulation of DOM fluxes in a seasonal floodplain of the Okavango Delta, Botswana
(Elsevier, www.elsevier.com/locate/ecolmodel, 2007)
In order to examine dissolved organic matter (DOM) fluxes in seasonal wetland systems that expand and contract seasonally, a time-variable model of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) was developed for a seasonal floodplain ...
Interactions between fire and flooding in a southern African floodplain system (Okavango Delta, Botswana)
(Springer: http://www.springerlink.com, 2006)
A series of 98 satellite images was analysed to reconstruct the fire and flood history of a floodplain system in southern Africa(Okavango Delta, Botswana). The data was used to investigate interactions between fire and ...
Effects of annual flooding on dissolved organic carbon dynamics within a pristine wetland, the Okavango Delta, Botswana
(The Society of Wetland Scientists, 2005)
In the Okavango Delta in Botswana, dissolved organic matter (DOM) transport is controlled by the slow movement of an annual flood ‘pulse’ across permanently and seasonally flooded wetlands, known respectively as the ...
State interests and multilateral cooperation: thinking strategically about achieving 'wise use' of the Okavango Delta system
(Elsvier, www.elsevier.com, 2003)
This paper explores possibilities for achieving 'wise use’, defined as the sustainable utilization of resources of the Okavango Delta system, within the framework of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International ...
Global monitoring of wetlands - the value of ENVISAT ASAR Global mode
This paper elaborates on recent advances in the use of ScanSAR technologies for wetland-related research. Applications of active satellite radar systems include the monitoring of inundation dynamics as well as time series ...
