The paper analyzes the results of diagnosing manifestation techniques of covered with the grass stand dried-out wetlands over-wetted areas and organic substances low-temperature oxidation and self-heating zones by consecutive day-time and night-time and seasonal radar – thermal IR aviation remote sensing complex ACRS-30 surveys. The investigations were held in winter and dry autumn season conditions, whether vegetation processes in crops mostly stopped.
Keywords: влажность, почва, низкотемпературное окисление и самонагревание торфа, дистанционное зондирование, ИК и СВЧ данные, обработка данных, over-wetted soil, low-temperature oxidation and self-heating of organic substances, remote sensing, thermal IR and radar microwave data, data processing
