AbstractWetlands are important components of ecosystems because of their role in the maintenance of environmental quality and bio-diversity. Increasingly, wetlands have been under stress due to drainage activities and subsequent habitat fragmentation. Their importance to a healthy environment and the growing public awareness of their plight has generated the need for effective management approaches to wetland conservation, including the use of remote sensing data. This paper reviews the role of RADARSAT in mapping and monitoring wetlands, with examples of research results and studies from North and South America used to support the discussion.
