Land degradation is caused by multiple forces, including extreme weather conditions particularly drought, and human activities that pollute or degrade the quality of soils and land utility negatively affecting food production, livelihoods, and the production and provision of other ecosystem goods and services. This book introduces the basic concepts of GIS and remote sensing and explores the basic aspects of land degradation. It covers mostly the physical and physic-chemical processes of soil loss. It combines different methods and approaches for land degradation monitoring and assessment and help readers understand and design sustainable land management strategies.
