About this book

The ability to anticipate the impacts of global environmental changes on natural resources is fundamental to designing appropriate and optimized adaptation and mitigation strategies. However, this requires the scientific community to have access to large scale, reliable information on spatio-temporal changes in the distribution of abiotic conditions and on the distribution, structure, composition and functioning of ecosystems; as well as on the effectiveness of various management actions. The potential for satellite remote sensing to provide access to some of this key data has been highlighted by many, through offering repeatable, standardised and verifiable information directly relevant to the monitoring and management of our natural capital. Satellite Remote Sensing and the Management of Natural Resources demonstrates how ecological knowledge and satellite-based information can be effectively combined to address a wide array of current natural resource management needs. By focusing on concrete applied examples in both the marine and terrestrial realms, it will help pave the way for developing enhanced levels of collaboration between the ecological and remote sensing communities, as well as shaping their future research directions.
