About this book

Global Change studies are increasingly being considered a vital source of information to understand the Earth Environment, in particular in the framework of human-induced climate change and land use transformation. Satellite Earth Observing systems provide a unique tool to monitor those changes. While the range of applications and innovative techniques is constantly increasing, this book provides a summary of key case studies where satellite data offer critical information to understand the causes and effects of those environmental changes, minimizing their negative impacts. This book will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in the field of remote sensing, geographical information, meteorology and environmental sciences. Also scientists and graduate up to post-graduate level students in environmental science will find valuable information in this book.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This collection of conference papers surveys the rapidly expanding area of research on observing global change in the Earth system. Remote-sensing applications to land use, coastal and marine ecosystems, snow and ice, and natural hazards, as well as geodetic and geospatial data processing techniques employed in global change research, are surveyed in 19 chapters by an international group of more than 60 authors. … recommend this book to researchers in remote sensing and global change studies. There is valuable, reasonably current research presented here.” (John A. Knox, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, July, 2012)
