    California's environment is characterized by vast extremes and great ranks near the top among the 50 states in nearly every category of biodiversity. It is under extensive pressure due to global climate changes and increasing population and development.. This research guide lists important print and Internet sources of information on California's environment and natural resources.

The results showed a considerable increase in urban land area within the periods studied and that these urban areas had the highest surface temperature, followed by the surrounding barren lands.

Satellite reconnaissance of the Earth’s surface provides critical information about the state of human interaction with the natural environment.

The strongest impact is agricultural, reflecting land-use approaches to food production extending back to the dawn of civilization.

Hazlett, Joshua Peck. GIS emerged as a viable technology in the early s. In the s, it exploded into one of the fastest growing and most widely adopted technologies in the information age. GIS technology also crosscuts many disciplines and applications ranging from the medical profession to natural resource management.

By the early to mids, only 7, ha of woodlands in this original area remained, indicating a loss of approximately 91 percent of this resource. This quantitative assessment of woodland loss helps confirm the earlier qualitative estimates of up to a 95 percent loss.

The Thematic Mapper imagery, provided with the launch of Landsat 4 in was commercialized in Its price jumped from the cost of reproduction to $3, and later $4, per scene (for all seven bands), making the data virtually inaccessible except for high priority research and surveys.

The earliest baseline against which future change can be compared often comes from historical legacy data ().In many instances legacy data may be digitized, placed in a GIS, and analyzed in conjunction with more recent geographic data, such as satellite remotely-sensed data.

Since the mids, Landsat data with two MSS (multispectral scanners) and a TM (thematic mapper) has become the principle source of data used to provide estimates of deforestation [ HAN 08].

Environmental and resource studies have been the fastest growing and most diverse nexus of academic research, private sector concern and public sector action.

Universities worldwide are adding academic and extension professorships and staff as well as experiencing increasing student interest in this area at a. In modern mapping, a topographic map is a type of map characterized by large-scale detail and quantitative representation of relief, usually using contour lines, but historically using a variety of methods.

Traditional definitions require a topographic map to show both natural and man-made features. A topographic map is typically published as a map series, made up of two or more map sheets. Decentralization is one of the most important innovations in environmental policy during the past 30 years.

Despite the pervasiveness and large amounts of resources invested to implement these reforms, little is known about their environmental effects.

He came to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center as a National Academy of Sciences post-doctoral fellow in late Since he has been a physical scientist and leader of the GIMMS group at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

In the mid s he contributed to the sensor configuration of Landsat's thematic mapper instrument. A geographic information system (GIS) is a conceptualized framework that provides the ability to capture and analyze spatial and geographic data. GIS applications (or GIS apps) are computer-based tools, that allow the user to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze spatial information output, edit datum presented within maps, and visually share the results of these operations.

This study analyzed more than 50 years of land cover and land use changes in the km2 Koga catchment in North Western Ethiopia. The data used includesscale aerial photographs, Landsat MSS, TM and ETM images, and ASTER images together with ground truth data collected through field surveys and community elders’ interviews.
