Summary and Info
"Featuring contributors from 17 countries, this book systematically presents recent advances in environmental remote sensing. First, the text provides the latest developments in remote sensing data and sensor systems, paying special attention to LIDAR, high spatial-resolution sensing, hyperspectral sensing, and data fusion of various sensors. Next, authors examine cutting-edge algorithms and techniques for the detection, interpretation, characterization, and modeling of Earth surface features. The final section explores applications of current data, sensors, algorithms, and techniques to the remote sensing of land, vegetation, water, and air."--Provided by publisher."1. Aims and Scope The main purpose of compiling such a book is to provide an authoritative supplementary text for upper division undergraduate and graduate students, who may have chosen a text book from a variety of choice in the market. This book collects two types of articles: (1) comprehensive review articles from leading authorities to examine the developments in concepts, methods, techniques, and applications in a sub-field of environmental remote sensing; and (2) focused review articles in respect of the latest developments in a hot topic area with one to two concise case studies. Because of the nature of articles collected, this book can also serve as a good reference book for researchers, scientists, engineers, and policy-makers who wish to keep up with new developments in environmental remote sensing"--Provided by publisher.
