This book on the climate change, natural resources, landscape and agricultural ecosystems describes the contributing challenges related to natural resources, soil erosion, irrigation planning, water, landscape, sustainable crop yield agriculture and biomass estimation. Natural resources and agricultural ecosystems include factors from nearby regions where landscape and agriculture practices (direct or indirect) interface with the water, vegetation, irrigation planning and ecology. Changes in climatic situations impact all the natural resources, ecology, and landscape of agricultural systems, which affects productivity.
This book summarizes the various aspects of soil erosion, soil compaction, soil nutrients, aquifer and water with respect to vegetation, crops, pest and sustainable yields and management for the future. It also focuses on the use of precision techniques, remote sensing, GIS technologies, IOT and climate related technology for the sustainability of ecology, natural resources and agricultural areas, along with the capacity and flexibility of natural resources and agricultural societies under climate change. This book presents both theoretical and applied aspects and will help as a guide for future research. The contents will appeal to researchers, scientists, and NGOs working in climate change, environmental sciences, agriculture engineering, remote sensing, natural resources management, remote sensing, GIS, hydrologist, soil sciences, agricultural microbiology, plant pathology and agronomy.

Dr. Sudhir Kumar Singh: (University of Allahabad), Ph.D.
Offers basics of remote sensing & GIS, Remote Sensing and Satellite Meteorology courses to M. Tech. Students at K. Banerjee Centre of Atmospheric and Ocean Studies, University of Allahabad, Prayagraj, India. He has worked on the application of geochemical and hydrological model (SWAT) to study the impact of land use/land cover change on water quality and quantity of the drought-affected river basin. He has opted for a challenge to study Land use land cover studies in a; north-eastern part of Punjab using multi-date satellite data. He has also studied the impact of land-use and land-cover change on groundwater quality in the Lower Shiwalik hills: remote sensing and GIS-based approach. These studies also have socio-economic and environmental implications in achieving the objectives of sustainability. Worked as PI and Co-PI funded by University Grants Commission, Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi, India and Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India. He has published his results in peer-reviewed journals with high impact factors. Also, a part of the BRICS international team to look at the impact of land use/land cover and climate change on river basins. Research focuses on Remote sensing and geographical information system applications in the environment with special reference to land use/land cover change and water resource management. He has published more than 167 research papers in international journals with springer and Elsevier, Taylor and Francis with citations more than 3497. He has published two edited and one reference book. Worked as Associate Editor in Arabian Journal of Geoscience, Water Science Conservation and Engineering and Guest editor in many leading journals such as Physics, Chemistry and Earth, Remote Sensing and Water.
