About this book

Remote sensing technology has evolved into an integral research tool for the natural sciences. Disciplines such as climatology, hydrology, and studies of the terrestrial biosphere have all developed a strong remote sensing analysis component. Moreover, remote sensing has fascilitated our understanding of the environment and its many processes over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales. This is an important part of hydrological research, especially in water resources management, environmental monitoring and prediction, and the detection of environmental change.

This publication is a compilation of papers that were presented at the IAHS Symposium on Remote Sensing for Environmental Monitoring and Change Detection organised by the IAHS International Commission on Remote Sensing, in Perugia, 2007. The 30 contributions cover approaches using the thermal infrared, microwave and radar; studies monitoring vegetation, snow and ice, and evapotranspiration; and the combination of remote sensing techniques and GIS for hydrological applications.
