Detailed Description

642 pgs, 1993, Gordon and Breach Science Publishers
ISBN 978-2881249402

This textbook of principles and applications of remote sensing focuses more on the object than the sensor. While it formulates the requisite instrumentation and physics of electromagnetic waves at the university level and attempts to bridge the gap between optical and microwave concepts, its emphasis is remote sensing's use for monitoring land dynamics in agriculture, forestry, conservation, and environmental pollution. The editors integrated contributions from 26 experts with vivid color photographs, sharp line art and easily readable charts.
