The Southeast Asia Regional Research and Information Network (SEARRIN) is dedicated to the scientific understanding of human-environment interactions. SARIN conducts research on land cover and land use change in an integrated science framework that includes remote sensing and GIS technology, econometric and systems models, and field work.
