About this book

This book covers remote sensing as a process applied to solar system exploration, with emphasis on understanding and utilizing the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The goal is to create a common ground for those involved in every aspect of remote sensing, representing a wide range of science, engineering and management disciplines.


Historical Developments in Remote Sensing and Mapping.- Principles of Data and Image Processing: Processing and interpreting remote sensing data, Transforming and correlating remote sensing datasets.- The Visible Spectrum: The origin, observations, and interpretation of Image and Spectral Bands, color, texture, and albedo for classification of terranes.- Exploring the Ray Region: Gamma-ray region (Natural radioactivity, Cosmic Ray interaction), X-ray Region (Production, Fluorescence, Scatter), Neutrons (Production, Scatter), UV (XUV, fluorescence, absorption, albedo) for elemental abundances.- Exploring the Near Visible Region: SUV, Near IR, Mid-IR, active and passive techniques (lasers), for molecular constituents (atmospheres)/mineralogy (surfaces).- Exploring the Longwave Region: Thermal IR, Microwave, Radio, Sound, Topograpy (altimetry), active and passive techniques, surface properties from kilometers to millimeters.- Exploring Fields and Particles (3D): for interior structure, Gravity, Magnetic Fields, Ions and Electrons (Magnetosphere).- Future of Remote Sensing: issues in studying complex systems, data fusion methodologies, proposed instrument assemblages and missions.
