A quick search on sites like SciELO, Science Direct or Google Scholar is enough to find a multitude of studies that make use of remote sensing.
For example, in the thesis by Gabriel Rondeau-Genesse, from the University of Sherbrooke, treated images from RADARSAT-2 were used to establish a relationship between the amount of wet snow and the runoff received in the studied reservoir.
Deodato Deodato N. Aquino and collaborators used remote sensing to assess how the degradation of natural resources in the municipality of Tauá (Ceará) occurred over the years. They sought to correlate the NDVI (an index representing vegetation) with rainfall data over the years.
Realize that the wide range of remote sensing applications makes it a multidisciplinary science and guarantees several advantages for many professionals and for society.
In addition, the intersection of remote sensing with artificial intelligence techniques also opens up new avenues for research and allows us to develop new tools to help us all.
