Project overview

The literature review undertaken as part of this project aims to capture state-of-the-art knowledge and applications (nationally / internationally) of RS techniques to detect temporal and spatial changes in environmental conditions, including the following domains:

  • Land (e.g. land-use change, agricultural drought, landslides, etc.)

  • Freshwater (e.g. flood extent, water quality, groundwater discharge, etc.)

  • Ocean (e.g. coastal water quality, sea level rise, etc.)

  • Climate and air (e.g. evapotranspiration, air pollution, etc.).


The content of this page is aimed to be dynamic and updated as the RS technology and applications are progressing.
