A Remote Sensing Approach to Improve Desertification Monitoring and Assessment
The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) reinforces the need for rigorous scientific knowledge and systematic monitoring of desertification. It also recognizes the importance of providing decision makers, in affected countries, with effective means to combat the problem, including relevant data, information and access to technology.
The intention of this paper is to support the process of interdisciplinary thinking about new sensor systems and measurement methods and their implementation in order to solve problems connected to desertification.
