Economics of Land Degradation and Improvement – A Global Assessment for Sustainable Development
Understanding the impacts of land degradation is, at least in part, limited by our ability to accurately characterize those impacts in space and time. While in recent decades remote sensing has offered unprecedented coverage of the land surface, the evaluation of remote sensing products is often limited or lacking altogether. In this chapter we use a survey-based approach to evaluate how well already existing remotely sensed datasets depict areas of land degradation. Ground-based surveys aredoi:10.1007/978-3-319-19168-3_5 fatcat:syambp37irhrti6sjr7pd4dmpi
