Abstract
The aims of remote sensing techniques are to explore and monitor earth resources: soil, sub soil, water, vegetation and minerals. Moreover, the aim of remote sensing can be extended to monitor and record and changes that might occur to these resources, either because of human activities or natural processes. This study aims to use remotely sensed data to study the state of vegetation cover in Al-Hassa oasis during the past ten years and to assess the impact of the environmental changes resulted from the operation of the irrigation and Drainage Project.
