About this book

Remote Sensing provides information on how remote sensing relates to the natural resources inventory, management, and monitoring, as well as environmental concerns. It explains the role of this new technology in current global challenges. "Remote Sensing" will discuss remotely sensed data application payloads and platforms, along with the methodologies involving image processing techniques as applied to remotely sensed data. This title provides information on image classification techniques and image registration, data integration, and data fusion techniques. How this technology applies to natural resources and environmental concerns will also be discussed.

About the authors

Siamak Khorram has joint appointments as a Professor in Geospatial Sciences at both the University of California (Berkeley) and North Carolina State University. He is Founding Director of the Center for Earth Observation, North Carolina State University. A former Vice President of Academic Programs and Dead of the International Space University (ISU) as well as former Chair of the ISU's Academic Council. Dr. Khorram has authored over 200 publications in peer-reviewed journals and written many major technical reports. He is also a member of several professional and scientific societies. His Ph.D. is awarded jointly by the University of California at Berkeley and Davis.

Stacy A. C. Nelson is currently an Associate Professor and a researcher with the Center for Earth Observation at North Carolina State University. Dr. Nelson received a B.S. from Jackson State University, a M.A. from the College of William and a Ph.D. from Michigan State University. His research centers on GIS technologies to address questions of land use and aquatic systems. He has worked with several federal and state agencies including; the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, the NASA-Regional Earth Science Applications Center (RESAC), and two Departments of Environmental Quality at the state level. He is active in several professional societies.

Frank H. Koch - Dr. Koch is a Research Ecologist with the USDA Forest Service. Previously, he was a Research Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University. His primary area of research is alien forest pest invasions. Specifically, he is interested in the spatio-temporal dynamics of invasions at national and continental scales. This multidisciplinary work involves GIS, remote sensing, statistics, and spatial simulation modeling. Dr. Koch regularly collaborates with other USDA Forest Service scientists as well as researchers from the Canadian Forest Service, the USDA Animal and Planet Health Inspection Service, and several universities. He has authored numerous journal articles and other publications. Dr. Koch received his BA from Duke University and his M.S. and Ph.D. from North Carolina State University.

Cynthia F. Van Der Wiele is currently principle of The Calapogon Group, LLC, Raleigh, North Carolina. She also serves as a research associate at North Carolina State University. Her research focuses on the development of high-accuracy land use/land cover classifications for analyses and improved land use planning policies. Dr. Van Der Wiele received her B.S. and a Masters degree from North Carolina State University, and two Masters degrees from Duke University. She received her Ph.D. in community and environmental design from North Carolina State University and has performed landscape change analyses of the Research Triangle region of North Carolina.
