Abstract

Constructed impervious surfaces are both hydrological and ecological disturbances. However, constructed surfaces are different from most other types of disturbances in that recovery is arrested through the use of materials that are resistant to decay and are actively maintained. The same characteristics that make impervious surfaces ideal for use in construction produce a series of effects on the environment. We present a new map of the density of constructed surface in S.E. Asia derived from Defense Meteorological Satellite Program’s Operational Linescan System (DMSP OLS) nighttime lights and LandScan population count data
