Remote sensing : environmental change

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The first part will review the quantification of land cover dynamics. One focus of remote sensing research strives to improve the precision and specificity of measurement methods, while another equally important direction attempts to interpret and utilize the data derived from remote observation. Understanding the importance of land use/land cover to the biogeochemical cycles is a complex mixture of ecology, chemistry and geomorphology. The question of how to scale up local measurements to use in regional and global models is a key area of research. The second part highlights research where remote sensing can help to bridge the gap in our knowledge between physical and cultural aspects of environmental change
