Detecting the overexploitation of soils in the Mediterranean environment using a hyperspectral remote sensing approach
Cultivation and land use practices have a long history within the Mediterranean region exploiting soils as a natural resource. Soils are an essential factor contributing to agricultural production and their inadequate management is endangering their quality and productivity. Soil degradation processes are variable in time and space and depend on the initial soil composition, climate, and crop sequence and management practices for arable ecosystems. In this context, the combined use of ground-based field spectroscopy and remotely sensed hyperspectral data provides essential information on soil surface characteristics to model and monitor soil degradation processes and to improve land use management for optimizing crop production. The upcoming new generation of hyperspectral sensors will provide opportunities to monitor and protect soils from overexploitation.
