Abstract

The aim of this research is to establish a methodology for the systematic study of saline wetlands in southern Monegros. A wetlands inventory was produced and updated using satellite data, field observations, and orthophotographs, together with the available disperse data about these wetlands'toponomy and location. The degraded landscape appearance of the surviving wetlands, mainly affected by agricultural intensification, dumping and farming, has been quantitatively assessed. The integration of remote sensing and GIS with field data was a powerful tool to track recent changes and assess wetland disturbance
