Remote sensing is a mature technology that has been largely under- utilized in a world increasing focus on Geographic Information Systems. With the goal of encouraging a wider appreciation of what this science can achieve, Environmental Sensing: Analytical Techniques for Earth Observation introduces the scope and method of remote sensing within the context of environmental analysis and assessment.
Written in easy to follow language, Environmental Sensing: Analytical Techniques for Earth Observation presents cutting-edge techniques and innovative applications in a manner that is accessible to the non-technical professional. Incorporating extensive use of both the environmental and remote sensing literature, Environmental Sensing: Analytical Techniques for Earth Observation can serve as a valuable reference as well as a useful teaching resource in and out of the classroom.
At a time when society is increasingly focused on the vexing issues surrounding global change and environmental sustainability, bringing remote sensing "down to earth" is both a timely and essential step toward enhancing environmental understanding and guide effective environmental decision making.
