EARSeL is a scientific network of European remote sensing laboratories, coming from both academia and the commercial/industrial sector; EARSeL covers all fields of geoinformation and earth observation through remote sensing.

Climate change, overpopulation, overexploitaion of natural resources, all put pressure on the sustainability of most human activities. Many believe that we must drastically change our ways, in order to adapt to the new circumstances. In order to decide on what is required to change, we must investigate the possibilities and to do so, we require data and information. So how can remote sensing methods help fill this gap and lead us to sustainability?
