Critical to the more sustainable extraction of natural resources is ensuring that sites and projects are responsibly closed, which includes restoring natural ecosystems to their pre-development condition.

Remote sensing data from a variety of platforms provides important data to support the planning, execution, and monitoring of site remediation and restoration activities including the monitoring of re-vegetation.

In this webinar we will hear case studies on the use of state-of-the-art remote sensing tools for monitoring of site restoration activities associated with mining and oil and gas activities.
