Abstract

The use of computer models, remote sensing, geographic information systems and other information technologies are dramatically altering decision-making processes affecting environmental management. NASA's Earth Observing Systems, along with other global and local climate, monitoring of the biosphere's life-sustaining systems. Yet, major challenges remain in converting reams of data into useful information and in effectively disseminating that information to policy-makers, resource managers, and the public. This panel will explore the applications of new information technologies, including GIS, fuzzy logic, and electronic communications, to three levels of environmental management: (1) data analysis, (2) information dissemination, and (3) the mobilization of environmental action plans. The use of information technologies affords significant improvement in the availability of information for environmental decision-making, leading to more effective and timely intervention.
