Summary

This book provides a step-by-step guide on how to use various publicly-available, remotely-sensed time series data sources for environmental monitoring and assessment. Readers will learn how extract valuable information on global changes from a 20-year collection of ready-to-use remotely-sensed data through the free, open GIS and statistical software R. The case studies are from the Mediterranean region- a designated hot spot regarding climate change effects. Each chapter is dedicated to specific remote sensing products chosen for their spatial resolution. The methods used are adapted from large-scale to smaller-scale problems for different land cover areas.
