Joint EARSeL LULC & NASA LCLUC Workshop: Land-Use/Cover Change Drivers, Impacts and Sustainability within the Water-Energy-Food Nexus

11-12 July 2018, Chania, Crete, Greece

The 3rd EARSeL NASA LCLUC Workshop will take place in Chania, Greece, 11th-12th July, 2018. It will focus on water, food and sustainability research supported by Earth Observations and derived remote sensing products. The workshop will address innovative research on the relationships amongst natural processes (e.g. biogeochemical and hydrologic cycles) and social/behavioral processes (e.g. decision making and governance) as supported by remote sensing observations. Land-use change with an emphasis on forests and watershed management, urban areas flooding and water consumption, arable lands irrigation and combatting drought will be some of the topics presented at this workshop. Remote sensing provides means to quantify land-use/cover changes and together with socio-economic information helps our understanding of land-use change and their associated drivers, impacts and sustainability.
