About this book

Providing an overview of soil salinity assessment using remote sensing technologies, this book analyzes basic issues of remote detection, such as the spectral behavior of salt type and vegetation influence. This helps readers better understand the concepts of remote detection and the mapping of salt affected areas.

Each of the currently available remote sensing platforms is evaluated for its advantages and its disadvantages. International contributors present the latest technological developments and image classification techniques used to detect and to map this form of land degradation. Color images included on an accompanying CD-ROM enhance the material discussed in the text.


The Problem. Remote Sensing Technologies. Cartography of Salt Affected Areas: Case Study Applications. Modeling and Prediction. Conclusions and Future Challenges.
