About this book

This volume provides international case studies of practical and advanced methods using satellite images integrated with other airborne, drone images and field data to monitor infrastructure. The book is timely, as infrastructure spending by national governments is increasing and robust monitoring techniques are needed to keep pace with climate change impacts affecting infrastructures globally. The expert international contributions that comprise the book provide examples of advanced methods using InSAR, high-resolution optical and radar images, LIDAR, UAV, geophysical techniques and their applications to civil infrastructure. The case studies focus on high-resolution, rapid time-series radar interferometry to monitor highways, railways, pipelines, bridges, urban, and water conveyance infrastructures.  Other case studies use optical and radar images to characterize urban infrastructure and monitor damages from floods, oil spills and conflicts. The case studies are global focusing on infrastructure projects in Canada, Dominica Guyana, India Italy, Syria Taiwan, United States and the United Kingdom. This compilation of selected case studies will provide useful guidelines for the civil infrastructure characterization and monitoring communities. The book will be of interest to infrastructure consultants and professionals, scientific communities in earth observation and advanced imaging methods, and researchers and professors in earth sciences, climate change, and civil and geoengineering.

About the authors

Dr Vernon Singhroy is the President of EOSPATIAL in Ottawa, Canada. He is an internationally recognized expert on remote sensing applications, and was the chief scientist of the Canadian Space Agency, RADARSAT Constellation Mission, launched in June 2019. Dr. Singhroy received his Ph.D. in environmental and resource engineering from the State University of New York, Syracuse. He is a professional engineer. A senior research scientist with the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing at Natural Resources Canada (1995-2020), Dr. Singhroy has published over 300 papers in scientific journals, proceedings, and books. He was the editor-in-chief of the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing, and he is the co-editor of four books, including of the Encyclopedia of Remote Sensing. Dr. Singhroy has been a Professor of Earth Observation at the International Space University in Strasbourg, France (1998-2020) and he is an adjunct professor in Planetary and Space Sciences at the University of New Brunswick in Canada. Dr. Singhroy received the prestigious Gold Medal Award from the Canadian Remote Sensing Society and the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal for his contributions to Canadian and international remote sensing applications and education.
