Re: Satellite technology which helps scientists prevent us from Desertification

Observing Global Desertification with the Assistance of Space Technology is a very useful method how to keep an eye on desertification, and droughts. This is a vital important system that defines all the mechanisms involved in the process of desertification. The sheer volume of information produced...

Satellite technology which helps scientists prevent us from Desertification

Desertification is a type of degradation of land in which the land becomes more arid. Desertification is a direct result of global warming, and approximately 12 million hectares of productive land becomes barren due to desertification annually. Remote sensing technology can be used to measure the ex...
