Media reviews

From the reviews: "This book is mainly intended for graduate students and research workers 'interested in applied Earth sciences'. ! it has very useful, brief descriptions of subjects ! . There are figures on most pages, which considerably help the understanding of the subject ! . The index is very good ! . Libraries should definitely purchase it as a useful reference book, especially with its more than usual references to tropical countries ! ." (R.B.King, The Photogrammetric Record, Vol. 18 (104), 2003) From the reviews of the second edition: "This is a useful book for teaching remote sensing and how it can be used in geology in particular. ! The book is divided into 16 very interesting chapters. ! The appendices at the end are very good in explaining what is meant by color along with other valuable items. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who is teaching remote sensing for geologists." (Fouad Michael, American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Vol. 87 (12), 2003)
