ScopeNatural system, environmental quality, and anthropogenic processes have strong relationship. Environmental changes and its causes increase needs to address the consequences taking place in the structural and functional ecosystems. Much progress of anthropogenic activities has been made and significantly improves social economics. However, human system has been altering and raising burden on the natural system by converting land use and land cover, bringing up water, soil and air pollution, changing regional and global climate, and enhancing frequency of natural disasters, e.g., floods, landslides. Planners are increasingly pressured with challenges of balance between demands and developments while lessening the detrimental impact of social processes on environment. Remote sensing and GIS have proved with their advantages in providing data and tools to model and visualize spatial-temporal environmental changes and influential factors so that practical policy for environmental protection and management may be proposed. This session seeks for papers on advancements in development of techniques and models with remote sensing and GIS to contribute environmental applications to exhibit and visualize influences of human activities on environmental changes and to improve understanding of the relationship between anthropogenic activities and natural system and climate patterns. Solutions for environmental management in short- and long-term visions are very welcome. Subtopics: Remote sensing and GIS for eco-environment and natural hazards Sustainable land use and urban growth management Environmental and resource conservation, and pollution prevention Environmental solutions and sustainable ecological development Factors affecting patterns of environmental degradation Links between environmental challenges and urban-rural development Demand supply factors and strategic planning Change in management in dynamic environment with GIS and RS
