As the hazardous waste problem grows and becomes an increasing threat to health, the need for larger volumes of accurate environmental information will expand. During the last year, with the development of satellite and computer technology Earth Science and environmental research have become highly dependent on digital imagery. Landsat, Spot, ERS-1 SAR, NOAA, AVHRR satellite data are processed for detection, extraction and classification for environmental purposes on a global scale based on the spectral information of the imagery. A complete description of an analyzed area from ecological point of view will take account `in situ' measurements of environmental factors. The prediction or assessment of environmental impacts is not an easy task. It must be conducted by an interdisciplinary team, including satellite remote sensing for short term and long term impacts.
