About this book

A systematic treatment of key issues in the coastal environment, this book covers topics such as continental shelves, islands or partially enclosed seas, estuaries, bays, lagoons, beaches, and terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems within watersheds that drain into coastal waters. The chapters introduce applications of high spatial resolution, hyperspectral, LiDAR data and GPS-guided field survey. They cover state-of-the-art developments in remote sensing of coastal environments through representative case studies that employ the most up-to-date technologies.

Media reviews
... certainly fills a critical niche in remote sensing applications, since not many remote sensing textbooks deal with the dynamics and complex coastal environments. This book is edited by Professor Yeqiao Wang. an internationally known expert in the field of coastal remote sensing. Most of the contributing authors are well-respected researchers. The book is suitable for use by advanced undergraduate students. graduate students and practitioners in the field. --Yang Shoo, PhD, Research Associate, National Research Counsel, United States Environmental Protection Agency, in Photogrammeric, December 2010 All in all, this publication covers many remote sensing techniques and their various current applications. ... it is no doubt an extremely useful and informative body of work for those already familiar with the subject matter covered. One suspects that the evolution of remote sensing techniques will be more rapid than the coastal changes that they are now being used to detect and monitor. For this reason, it is highly probable that we shall see more on this theme in the future. ... this publication represents an excellent snapshot of the current situation. --Nick Bray, Terra et Aqua. 2010
