Multispectral remote information in forest research
The article proposes approaches to the use of multi-spectral remote information in basic research on the spatiotemporal organization of biogeocenotic cover with and without the use of ground field measurements. It is postulated that remote measurements reflect the biophysical condition of biogeocenotic cover defined by the absorption and conversion of solar energy and can be considered as its properties. The measurements are interpreted from the perspective of thermodynamics of dissipative open systems. When combining remote information and ground measurements in accordance with the concepts of synergy, order parameters are selected. They are discussed in relation to the controlling parameter-the relief. The broad possibilities for using the results of basic research in the solution of practical problems related to the management of biological resources are noted.
