This book is dedicated to the study of climate change with aspects of defining segments in the indicated area. The fact is that it is highly important to provide contributions for an investigation into this area. Earth observation studies embrace the contribution of a variety of international institutions and entities providing efforts of environmental protection for reducing and minimizing the Earth’s climate change consequences. In the meantime, scientific outcomes of Earth monitoring with a reflection of segments affecting the environment and ecological condition of the investigated area are demonstrated.

There is reflected efforts of climate change within the framework of states, international institutions and entities in order to minimize a change in the Earth’s temperature. Attempts have been demonstrated in the area provided by early and recent contributions within the Kyoto Protocol and Paris Agreement with commitments for interested sites of participant countries.

In the meantime, the contents of the book include the investigations of authors and contributions of other scientists, researches and specialists in climate change. It provides additional information in understanding the process. There is some answer as to how and where there are sensitive areas to be considered in the measurement and observation stage of investigations, which could be helpful in decision making by authorities.

We do hope materials that the materials presented in the book chapters will be useful for specialists and authorities involved in the study and use of outcomes for climate changes based on Earth observations. (Imprint: Nova)
