IKONOS panchromatic images from a single year were used to characterise the effects of an extreme rainstorm event on six mountain catchment areas in Venezuela. Image registrations were accomplished using topographic base maps at 1 : 5000 scale giving a mapping accuracy between 37 and 40 m. It was used an 8-bit channel for correction, rectification, filteration and tone enhancements.Landsliding was discerned in the affected watersheds using morphometric criteria, including the shape of the slope… 
Using Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System in Predicting Area Vulnerable to Gully Erosion
The rate at which gully erosion destroy land and properties in our environment is so alarming and this is as a result of deforestation, bush burning, land clearing for agricultural purposes and road
Landslide susceptibility mapping at Al-Hasher area, Jizan (Saudi Arabia) using GIS-based frequency ratio and index of entropy models
Mountain areas in the southern western corner of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia frequently suffer from various types of landslides due to rain storms and anthropogenic activities. To resolve the problem
Identification of Landslide Scars in the Region of the Serra do Mar, São Paulo State, Brazil, Using Digital Image Processing and Spatial Analysis Tools
The objective of the present study, developed in a mountainous region in Brazil where many landslides occur, is to present a method for detecting landslide scars that couples image processing
GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS (GIS) AND REMOTE SENSING IN THE MANAGEMENT OF SHALLOW TROPICAL LAKES
TLDR
This paper reviews applications of remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) techniques to the assessment of tropical waters in order to establish trends and subsequently develop predictive models to facilitate effective management.

TLDR
Ten years' hydrological investigations at Danum have provided strong evidence of the effects of extremes of drought, as in the April 1992 El Niño southern oscillation event, and flood, in January 1996, when the sediment yield in that single day on 19 January 1996 exceeding the annual sediment load in several previous years.
