GLOBIO: Modelling Human Impacts on the Biosphere

The Global Methodology for Modelling Human Impacts on the Biosphere (GLOBIO) relates thousands of scientific studies on environmental impacts to risk on ecosystems by the use of different buffer zones from infrastructure. By linking risk of impact to human expansions in different ecosystems and regions with satellite imagery, available resources and infrastructure, overviews of the past, the current and the possible future with continued growth in infrastructure can be derived. Maps of impacts are available for Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, North America, Polar regions, and West Asia. Users may search the site by region. Posters are available from the regional pages. Press releases and a newsletter are also offered.
