Remote sensing and GIS applications in mountainous areas: Proceedings of the International Symposium on Remote Sensing and GIS for Monitoring Soils and Geomorphic Processes to Assist Integrated Development of Mountainous Land, Kathmandu, Nepal, 22-29 August 1999.

The symposium originated from ideas and activities of two working groups of the International Union of Soil Sciences. Its aims were:

- The effective use of databases, GIS and remote sensing to study the mountainous environment.
- The application of these modern technologies to study dynamic geomorphic processes and land degradation due to intensive or marginal land use.
- The application of improved knowledge of environmental processes in land evaluation and in development schemes of mountainous land.

The proceedings include all 32 papers presented at the symposium. A selected set of these papers was also published in a special issue of the International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation, Volume 3, Issue 1, 2001. Among the papers presented are some from staff of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, Space Applications Institute, European Soil Bureau at Ispra, Italy.
