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.

The Role of Remote Sensing in FAO's Global Forest Resources Assessment and Monitoring Programme
The need for assessment and systematic observations of forest cover and to establish and/or strengthen the necessary capacities has been strongly expressed in UNCED's Agenda 21. In keeping with its mandate FAO has executed a series of forest resources assessment projects. This paper focuses on the remote sensing approach used for the tropical part of the Forest Resources Assessment 1990 Project.
