Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Remotely sensed data are increasingly used (with varying success) for the monitoring and regulation of existing environmental policies, particularly those that occur at scales over which site visits are prohibitive. These policies govern deforestation and carbon balances, air and water pollution, urban sprawl and loss of agricultural land, and habitat destruction of threatened species, to name a few. As environmental degradation is made more visible and quantifiable, remote sensing data may also generate support for new policies. This issue will cover: the strengths and weaknesses of the existing use of remote sensing data in policy creation, implementation, evaluation, and enforcement; future advances in technology and applications; and unresolved issues including scale mismatch between available data and policy boundaries, legal implications (such as for private property rights), and the tenuous support for space programs that underpin all remote sensing efforts.
