Work ExperienceMy experience (since 1995) is a large project ongoing in the Southern part of Tunisia in purpose of desertification monitoring with the help of remote sensing. We try to find appropriate field measuremens by surface sampling for satellite data calibration. Change detection is linked to simple surface parameters such as green vegetation cover, brightness and soil color. Long time series of Landsat-MSS and Spot-HRV images are used to detect these surface changes. We try also to mix these data with social and economic parameters concerning the populations by means of a GIS to define the relations between Man and his environment.
