Mapping Urbanization Trends in a Forested Landscape Using Google Earth Engine
Land cover change is one of the most important issues facing the landscape of the Southeastern United States. Land use change impacts the natural environment, and it is critical to understand the
Effect of Land-Use Change on Runoff in Hyrcania
Population growth and human activities have resulted in drastic changes in land use in many areas of the world, including the Hyrcania region in northern Iran. Land-use changes affect the
Analysis of three decades of land cover changes in the Maputaland Coastal Plain, South Africa
Changes in land use and land cover over time and space indicate socioeconomic change. Population growth and consequent demand for economic development have increased the conversion of natural
Monitoring Land Cover Change on a Rapidly Urbanizing Island Using Google Earth Engine
Island ecosystems are particularly susceptible to climate change and human activities. The change of land use and land cover (LULC) has considerable impacts on island ecosystems, and there is a
Specifying the relationship between land use/land cover change and dryness in central Vietnam from 2000 to 2019 using Google Earth Engine
Abstract. Land use/land cover (LULC) change and climate change are thought to be closely related and mutually influential, especially in contexts where land is converted for urban expansion or

Abstract. Global climate change has affected the rate of rising sea level, the frequency, intensity, timing, and distribution of hurricanes and tropical storms which threatens coastal ecosystems such
Dynamics of Land and Water Resources and Utilization of Cultivated Land in the Yellow River Beach Area of China
Image analysis of the Yellow River beach area since 1987 provided land use and water body patterns to support effective agricultural and environmental management. Landsat and Sentinel-2A/B images,
Evaluating the integrity of forested riparian buffers over a large area using LiDAR data and Google Earth Engine
This study demonstrates a method to create accurate high-resolution riparian buffer maps which can be used to improve water management and provide future prospects for improving buffer zones monitoring to assess stream health.


Land cover changes assessment using object‐based image analysis in the Binah River watershed (Togo and Benin)
In this study, land cover changes between 1972 and 2013 were investigated in the Binah River watershed (North of Togo and Benin) using remote sensing and geographic information system technologies.

Results of the study show that Savannah River basin side of Georgia has been experiencing environmental change due to several decades of relentless pressure induced by anthropocentric activities and host of other socio-economic factors.
Mapping Decadal Land Cover Changes in the Woodlands of North Eastern Namibia from 1975 to 2014 Using the Landsat Satellite Archived Data
This study investigates changes in land cover over four administrative regions of North Eastern Namibia within the Kalahari woodland savannah biome, finding that most land cover changes occur within land designated as communally held, followed by state protected land.
Land-use Pressure and a Transition to Forest-cover Loss in the Eastern United States
The analysis shows that agricultural land use has continued to decline, and that this enables forest recovery; however, an important land-cover transition has occurred, from a mode of regional forest-cover gain to one of forest- cover loss caused by timber cutting cycles, urbanization, and other land-use demands.
Mapping wetlands in Indonesia using Landsat and PALSAR data-sets and derived topographical indices
The mapping of Indonesia’s wetland cover as a single thematic class, including peatlands, freshwater wetlands, and mangroves, agrees with existing image-interpreted products and can be used to quantify changing rates of land conversion inside and outside of wetlands.
Land Cover Change Monitoring Using Landsat MSS/TM Satellite Image Data over West Africa between 1975 and 1990
The potential of Landsat MSS and TM data for large scale land cover change assessment in West Africa is demonstrated and the importance of consistent and systematic data processing methods with targeted image acquisition procedures for long-term monitoring is highlighted.
