ScopeMeasuring environmental changes at various spatio-temporal scales is the key to improv
e our understanding of the relationship between human activities and environmental pro
blems. Remote sensing is a powerful tool to acquire information on the earth's surface fr
equently and repeatedly over a broad spatial scale, enabling us to find the changes whic
h might be related to the cause and consequence of environmental degradation. This ses
sion discusses the applications of remote sensing to the detection and monitoring of envi
ronmental changes in time and space, and aims to promote the knowledge-sharing for b
etter management of the environmental problems and natural disaster in any place in th
e world.
