Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
Coastal GTOS Strategic design and phase 1 implementation plan. Environment and Natural Resources Series 9
There is a clear need for information on global and regional change in coastal areas bordering the world’s large water bodies. Collection of in situ and remote sensing data must be improved and associated data management, model production, and communication infrastructure developed to provide free and timely information to developed and developing nations.

Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
Mapping coastal aquaculture and fisheries structures by satellite imaging radar. Case study of the Lingayen Gulf, the Philippines
Inventory and monitoring of coastal aquaculture and fisheries structures provide the necessary baseline data for decision-making on aquaculture and mariculture development, including regulatory laws, environmental protection and revenue collection. Mapping these structures can be performed with good accuracy and at regular intervals by satellite remote sensing, which allows observation of vast are... more

Global Terrestrial Observing System (GTOS)
The central mission of the Global Terrestrial Observing System (GTOS) is to provide policy makers, resource managers and researchers with access to the data they need to detect, quantify, locate, understand and warn of changes (especially reductions) in the capacity of terrestrial ecosystems to support sustainable development. GTOS focuses on five issues of global concern: 1. changes in land qu... more
