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
El Niño situation and prospects: 7 June 2002
7 June 2002. This El Niño situation and prospects report notes that uncertainty continues to prevail about a full-fledged El Niño, with Pacific Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) remaining slightly above average, while the typical response of the atmosphere is still not setting in.

Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
El Niño situation and prospects: 6 May 2002
The 6 May update of "El Niño situation and prospects" notes that uncertainty continues to prevail about a full-fledged El Niño developing this year: Pacific Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) remain above average, but the expected response of the atmosphere fails to develop.

Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
El Niño situation and prospects: April 2002
April 2002. This report is a coupled atmospheric and oceanic phenomenon; predictions are based on several independent observations. To estimate future El Niño-Southern Oscillation (or ENSO) conditions, a common practice is to compare different reputable models that currently represent the state-of-the-art as far as dynamical and statistical ENSO prediction systems are concerned.

Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
A methodology for monitoring wetlands for fisheries using NOAA AVHRR LAC thermal data
Frequent baseline data on wetlands are essential for assessing fishery potential and for a host of hydrologic and environmental applications. Remote sensing is the only tool which can be used to provide those data at frequent intervals and economically. Thus an operative methodology based on the thermal inertia difference between dry and wet lands has been developed from NOAA (National Oceanic and... more
