  • Introduction

    This special issue is dedicated to cover all environmental degradation issues and the relevant studies using geomatics approach including the usage of remote sensing, GIS, GPS and/or geospatial modeling. This approach facilitates studying environmental sensitivity to pollution, degradation, diseases transmission and hazards giving the advantage of spatiotemporal regional evaluation of the inaccessible areas which are difficult or impossible to be reached by conventional methods. This issue will gather all academic researchers working on pollution, mosquito-transmitted diseases, natural hazards, environmental vulnerability, and spatiotemporal environmental changes including loss of natural resources, coastal erosion, and thermal changes. This helps to highlight the global environmental problems to propose the suitable recommendations for mitigating the environmental risks to sustain the available resources
    Aims and Scope:
    1. Highlighting the global environmental vulnerability problems
    2. Assessing environmental pollution
    3. Monitoring the spatiotemporal changes in the environmental resources
    4. Characterizing mosquito habitats and mitigation measures
    5. Magnifying the value of using RS, GIS in environmental studies
    6. Setting recommendations to conserve the environmental resources
