About this book

Provides a unique resource of over 700 alphabetically-arranged and cross-referenced entries on how remote sensing works, what kinds of date are available, and the large number of satellites and instruments from which the information is obtained.

'Rees has successfully produced a dictionary-cum-encyclopedia for the specialist field of remote sensing ! While this book is an excellent starting point for newcomers to the field, it carries sufficient detail to be of use to those already familiar with earth observation and atmospheric data ! An outstanding feature is that websites have been added ! We can only hope that Rees and his publishers will produce new editions on a regular basis.' Anna Corlyon, Times Higher Education Supplement '! excellent presentation throughout. The diagrams are of a very high standard and the text is clearly laid out ! thorough cross-referencing and websites associated with the entries are given where appropriate ! this is a very useful source book and it will be valuable both for students trying to understand the technical language associated with remote sensing and environmental scientists trying to find sources of remotely sensed data.' Zoltan Hesley, Progress in Environmental Science '! a valuable reference for the newcomer in the field of remote sensing ! as well as for the scientist and practitioner.' Journal of Geology '! a useful, inexpensive addition to a bookshelf which I am sure will be constantly referred to.' Robin Vaughan, International Journal of Remote Sensing '! a valuable addition to existing remote sensing textbooks.' H. Rott, Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics 'This seems to be the first book of its kind in English to deal so broadly and advantageously with Russian satellites and camera systems.' V. G. Prokachyova and V. F. Usachev, World Meteorological Organization Bulletin
