New publication: Groundwater search by remote sensing: A methodological approach
In the framework of the technical assistance provided to the Groundwater Unit of the FAO-implemented IRAQ/SCR/986 "Three-year Agricultural Programme" for the three Iraqi Northern Governorates, a comprehensive remote sensing/GIS methodology was developed to identify potential sites for groundwater exploitation.

ASIACOVER - Towards the Development and Applications of a Multi-purpose Environmental and Natural Resources Information Base for Food Security and Sustainable Development
The renewable natural resources of many Asian countries have come under severe strain over the past two or three decades and most indicators point towards a continuation of this trend. Whilst a large amount of data related to land cover exist in Asia, most are not consistent over large geographic areas and therefore cannot be aggregated at regional and/or sub-regional scale. Hence, the aim of the ... more

Preparation of land cover database of Bulgaria through remote sensing and GIS
The FAO project TCP/BUL/8922 "Strengthening Capacity in Agricultural Development through Remote Sensing and GIS" has produced 14 land cover maps at 1:50 000 scale for selected test areas of the country, covering 5 600 sq km. These maps were prepared using Landsat satellite data, acquired in 1998 and 1999 as the main data source and thus represent the land cover existing at that time. The land cove... more

Remote sensing for decision-makers
In this Special, we present summaries of seven FAO case studies on the use of remote sensing and geographic information systems in management of renewable natural resources in agriculture, forestry and fisheries. The summaries are adapted from the Remote Sensing for Decision-makers Series, a collection of 17 short papers available from the FAO Environment and Natural Resources Service (SDRN). The ... more

Inventory and monitoring of shrimp farms by radar satellite data. Pilot study in Sri Lanka
Inventory and monitoring of shrimp farms are essential tools for decision-making on aquaculture development, including regulatory laws, environmental protection and revenue collection. Therefore, the availability of an accurate, fast and mainly objective methodology that also allows the observation of remote areas assumes a great value. The satellite remote sensing data are unique for mapping shri... more

Groundwater Exploration by Satellite Remote Sensing in the Syrian Arab Republic
A study undertaken in the Syrian Arab Republic indicates that the integration into a geographic information system of data extracted from earth observation satellites with those traditionally gathered, coupled with selected field investigations and the geological knowledge of the area under investigation, provides a powerful tool in groundwater search. This article offers examples of related activ... more

Wetlands Monitoring by ERS Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Data in Zambia
The objectives of the study presented in this paper were: to assess the suitability of European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images in monitoring the seasonal changes of the wetland areas and to carry out a comparison of the results obtained from both ERS SAR and NOAA AVHRR data. A summary of the process and results of the study are provided here.
