This book summarises the outcomes of the several projects and of a number of other recent studies related to the topic of land and water monitoring and Management in Siberia. It is intended to be a source of information for all those dealing with its subject: methods for the characterisation and wise utilisation of land and water resources in Siberia. Besides information, it aims to deliver motivation for thinking about applications and new site-adapted solutions. It will also provide understanding and conﬁdence that those better solutions are feasible based on the power of scientiﬁc-technical innovations and people’s creativity and efforts in handling them. The book will not overfeed readers with facts and data. The main intended innovation of the book is its focus on transferrable novel methods. Scientiﬁc tools will be proposed for measuring, evaluating, modelling and controlling processes in the landscapes of Siberia, especially in rural landscapes. The application of these new scientiﬁc tools requires not only open minds but also high levels of motivation and education. In some cases investments are needed. Thus, outreach and the adaption of new methods can only be realistically carried out in the framework of pilot studies based on further strengthened international scientiﬁc cooperation. The book is to serve as an advanced platform for new and more sustainable research cooperation between inventors and protagonists of new methods coming from different leading research institutions of Russia, Germany and other regions of the globe.
