Department of Soil Resources and Remote Sensing Applications TEXT SIZE: A A A

 Based on the properties, types and distribution of soils, this department focuses its research on quantitative classification; spatial distribution; dynamic monitoring, evaluation and management of the soil resources; and interactive relationships between soil evolution and environmental changes. By means of remote sensing,GIS and other modern techniques originating from related disciplines, a solid scientific basis for decision-making is provided to governments at various levels enabling efficient utilization and development of soil resources and macroscopic environmental management plans.
