Urbanization alters surface landscapes and drives changes in regional environments and the global environment by changing surface coverage, hydrological systems, and the ecosphere. Regarding global environmental changes and climate change, the development of urban regions poses several challenges in the interaction between humans and the environment. Topics include, but are not limited to, environmental pollution, land loss, the urban heat-island effect, changes in urban hydrology patterns, and the depletion of water resources.
