GI_Forum publishes high quality original research across the transdisciplinary field of Geographic Information Science (GIScience). The journal provides a platform for dialogue among GI-Scientists and educators, technologists and critical thinkers in an ongoing effort to advance the field and ultimately contribute to the creation of an informed GISociety. Submissions concentrate on innovation in education, science, methodology and technologies in the spatial domain and their role towards a more just, ethical and sustainable science and society. GI_Forum implements the policy of open access publication after a double-blind peer review process through a highly international team of seasoned scientists for quality assurance. Special emphasis is put on actively supporting young scientists through formative reviews of their submissions. Only English language contributions are published.

Abstract:
Unsustainable practices and increasing pressure on soil jeopardise the achievement of land degradation neutrality, targeted by 2030. Land degradation is costing billions in terms of land restoration and is heavily impacting human health and climate change. Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) target 15.3 focuses on the issue, and several methodologies are proposed to address land degradation. However, all present some limitations in terms of accuracy. This paper aims to present a more comprehensive approach based on the application of remote sensing technology. We show that the Copernicus Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 satellite imagery archives can be used on the one hand to detect the current soil conditions, on the other hand to predict the future balance of Soil Organic Carbon (SOC). A case study illustrates that SOC, tillage and bare soil are key quality indexes that can facilitate quantifying and achieving a land degradation-neutral world.

Keywords:  land degradation, soil quality, soil organic carbon
