About this Textbook

For nearly three decades there has been a phenomenal growth in the field of Remote Sensing. The second edition of this widely acclaimed book has been fully revised and updated. The reader will find a wide range of information on various aspects of geological remote sensing, ranging from laboratory spectra of minerals and rocks, ground truth, to aerial and space-borne remote sensing.
This volume describes the integration of photogeology into remote sensing as well as how remote sensing is used as a tool of geo-exploration. It also covers a wide spectrum of geoscientific applications of remote sensing ranging from meso- to global scale.
The subject matter is presented at a basic level, serving students as an introductory text on remote sensing. The main part of the book will also be of great value to active researchers.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is mainly intended for graduate students and research workers ‘interested in applied Earth sciences’. … it has very useful, brief descriptions of subjects … . There are figures on most pages, which considerably help the understanding of the subject … . The index is very good … . Libraries should definitely purchase it as a useful reference book, especially with its more than usual references to tropical countries … ." (R.B.King, The Photogrammetric Record, Vol. 18 (104), 2003)

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This is a useful book for teaching remote sensing and how it can be used in geology in particular. … The book is divided into 16 very interesting chapters. … The appendices at the end are very good in explaining what is meant by color along with other valuable items. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who is teaching remote sensing for geologists." (Fouad Michael, American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Vol. 87 (12), 2003)
