This paper raises awareness of data scale issues in environment migration research, for example the declining station network used in the CRU (3.2) dataset:

With a case study of a Senegalese village we examine how (and if) migration patterns are linked with climate and environmental changes.

This paper uses LASSO and Random Forest to select the best variables from a huge pool of indices to predict wood volume in Tadjikistan. Red Edge bands show to be of high value.
