Landscape Sciences for Environmental Assessment: A Nato Framework for International Cooperation

spacer
spacer
Abstract:An international pilot study has been developed to explore the possibility of quantifying and assessing environmental condition, processes of land degradation, and subsequent impacts on natural and human resources by combining the advanced technologies of remote sensing, geographic information systems, spatial statistics, and process models with landscape ecology theory. This project has been established under the NATO Committee on the Challenges ofModern Society which has established a network of national experts within 46 countries in Europe and North America. The purpose of the study is to foster a framework for scientific cooperation which can lead to the transfer of technologies and information among the study group participants for their use in environmental protection and preservation programs.
