Paper Abstract

We purposed a framework to diagnose the environment health of ecosystem at the global or regional scale based on a series of natural ecological factors such as vegetation, water, soil, air and so on. All the selected ecological factors can be acquired and monitored by remote sensing technology. By analyzing the spatial and temporal characteristics and the occurrence and evolution of the driving mechanism of ecosystem, we aimed to the main factors which affect environmental health, quantitatively defined the parameters' threshold of environmental safety, set up the objective ecological health assessment index system, and diagnosing of the health of key ecological areas.
