内容 研究概要:Satellite remote sensing is an advanced technology for Earth observation where it provides synoptic views of large in real-time and in a repetitive mode useful in surveying large and inaccessible areas. Characteristically it permits the accessibility to some phenomena not visible by the conventional techniques, as those detected in the infrared and radar wavelengths. The use of satellite remote sensing to provide environmental information on the earth surface is becoming important in understanding the desert conditions, in monitoring desertification and assessing of natural resources and other environmental phenomena. The paper shows how far natural resources and desertification phenomena can be monitored and evaluated using the wealth of information on the earth surface conditions provided by remote sensing techniques and satellites imagery. However, the complexity of desertification process and its monitoring requires the simultaneous use and integration of data collected from the conventional sources and from satellites of various types through the a geographic information system, these data are presented in form of thematic maps showing the land use, geomorphology, drainage system, soil moisture...etc., of the study area. These maps were used to produce three important synthetic maps; land suitability, erosion susceptibility and desertification map.
