This book focuses on monitoring and assessing various environmental processes in Tunisia using state-of-the-art remote sensing and GIS technologies. In addition to addressing the diversity of Tunisian landscapes and providing spatial analysis of natural, cultivated and urbanized environments. It presents and discusses several case studies on integrated RS / GIS approaches for mapping, modeling, monitoring and evaluation. Moreover, in this volume authored by experts in the topic from Tunisia and other countries, authors assess the agro-environmental applications from Tunisia and offer different methods and applications to environmental processes and risks including drought, degradation, flood, planning, Yield estimation, dust storm detection, dry land vulnerability, wetland dynamics and others. The material presented here will help decision-makers plan sustainable landscape and agricultural management policies that preserve biodiversity and contribute to achieving sustainability goals and for researchers, it will expose methodological approaches used in different fields of research. Graduate students and Practionioner engineers working in the field of RS/GIS will also benefit from the book. The book ends with a set of conclusions and recommendations to support researchers underscoring the need for further research in this area. Auteur Dr. Faiza Khebour Allouche is an associate professor of Landscape and Environment at the High Institute of Agronomic Sciences Chott Meriam (ISA-CM), Sousse University, Department of Horticultural Sciences and Landscape, Laboratory of Integrated management of natural resources: remote sensing, spatial analysis and modeling (GREEN-TEAM). She received the BsC. degree in Agronomic sciences from the ISA-CM, Sousse, in 1997, the M.S. degree in Improved crop production in 2000, With Honours, from the National Agronomic Institute of Tunis (INAT), Carthage University. She got her PhD degree in the field of Geography and management in 2007, with the highest level of distinction, from the Mirail Toulouse2 University, France, and has an Advanced Certificate in Geomatics and Applications from the National School of Geographic Sciences-Marne-La-Valée,Paris, France and the Hassania school of public works, Casablanca, Marocco. Faiza Khebour Allouche participated in several national and international projects from 1998 until now. She published more than 50 papers in national and international journals and conferences. She is a member of the scientific committee of several international conferences and a member of the organizing committee of others and participated in more than 30 conferences. Her principle background is related to engineering sciences and integrated remote sensing - GIS applications in the field of environment. The practical experience focus on landscape analysis, land degradation, land use, soil mapping, risks, modeling, and other different environmental studies. Her current research activities focuses on the integration of Geospatial data in different fields of research in support of the Sustainable Development Goals.
