Advances in geomatic simulations for environmental dynamics


Modelling environmental dynamics aids in the understanding and anticipation of future evolutions. Their prospective simulation supports decision-making for environmental management. This introductory chapter gives an overview about the context, objectives and opportunities (the challenges), followed by a summery of the methodological approaches commonly used in environmental modelling and simulation. Based on this general opening, the third part presents comprises chapters, which are case studies applying various models to a large array of themes: deforestation in tropical regions, fire risk, natural reforestation in European mountains, agriculture, biodiversity , urbanism, and land management. In this section, authors provide a comparison of these case studies based on several criteria such as objectives , scales, data, study areas, calibration and validation techniques, results and outcome.
