Environmental indicators for assessing and monitoring desertification and its influence on environmental quality in Mediterranean arid environments


Environmental indicators for assessing and monitoring desertification and its influence on environmental quality in Mediterranean arid environments



Man and soil at the Third Millennium Proceedings International Congress of the European Society for Soil Conservation Valencia Spain 28 March 1 April 2000 1: 897-910



This paper presents an indicator-based and remote sensing-supported approach, adapted to the particular environmental issues of European Mediterranean arid environments, to assess the state and trends of desertification and to help decision-makers undertake appropriate action in combating desertification and its consequences on the environmental quality of natural resources.
