Environmental pollution and disaster in soil, air, and water involves complex interaction among natural and anthropogenic causes. Among the obtainable geographic data, land use and land cover reflect a major part of land-surface activity, and are generally considered to contribute greatly to the variability of environmental pollution or disaster. Characterizing the mechanism that links the risk of exposure of pollution or disaster to land use and land cover distribution, could significantly facilitate the formulation of environmental action strategies and public health policy.
Relating environmental pollution or disaster to land-surface parameters effectively informs researchers by (1) quantifying the variability of pollutant or disaster (2) improve estimates/simulation of the risk and exposure of pollutant or disaster; and (3) promote epistemic understanding for the environmental and health risks for humans by scientific reasoning between the pollution or the disaster and land-surface parameters. In recent years, various methods have been widely applied in studies of environmental pollution or disaster relating to land-surface parameters, in order to characterize its behavior and risks that lead to public-health problems and socio-economic impact. Accordingly, this special issue focuses on data acquiring/retrieval, application of qualitative/quantitative models, and epistemic/ontological reasoning that relates environmental pollution or disaster and risk assessment to the description of land cover and management/policy-making of land use. Research papers on concise and novel techniques that encompass current developments of such studies are particularly welcome.
