Abstract

The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) have as their objective to create a “system of systems” which can support policymakers, resource managers, science researchers and other decision-makers. This article will help such audiences understand the relatively unique condition of small islands as they struggle to cope with natural and anthropocentric-induced disasters. It is of especially great use to non-islanders charged with or planning interventions in such places.
