    Abstract: Soil acidity and poor soil fertility are regarded as crop productivity limiting factors particularly in south western Ethiopia. Acidic soils limit the productive potential of crops because of low availability of basic cations and excess of hydrogen and aluminium in exchangeable forms. At the study area, soil acidity is a well-known problem limiting... Show More

    Abstract: This work aimed at detection of aerosols above clouds (AAC). It has been known that AAC has significant potential to change the global radiation budget, namely plays an important role in elucidating climate change. First we examined the advantages of multichannel data from near-UV to thermal infrared (IR) including polarization channels at red and ... Show More
