A frequently raised question in remote sensing community is that whether remote sensing is science, or technology, or art. Many of the literature preferred to define remote sensing as “science and art of obtaining and interpreting information about an object, area, or phenomenon through the analysis” (e.g., Jensen ; Bhatta ).

Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to on-site observation, especially the Earth.

Remote sensing is used in numerous fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth science disciplines (for example, hydrology, ecology, meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, geology); it.

Remote sensing—the acquisition of information from a distance—has had a profound impact on human affairs in modern history. This image of British Beach (the WWII code name for one landing spot of the June Normandy invasion) taken from a specially equipped US Army F5, reveals rifle troops on the beach coming in from various large and small landing craft.

Hyperspectral remote sensing is an emerging, multidisciplinary field with diverse applications that builds on the principles of material spectroscopy, radiative transfer, imaging spectrometry, and hyperspectral data processing.

While there are many resources that suitably cover these areas individually and focus on specific aspects of the Cited by: Introduction to Satellite Remote Sensing: Atmosphere, Ocean and Land Applications is the first reference book to cover ocean applications, atmospheric applications, and land applications of remote sensing.

Applications of remote sensing data are finding increasing application in fields as diverse as wildlife ecology and coastal recreation management.

Remote-sensing technologies come in two flavors: Passive remote sensing relies on naturally reflected or emitted energy of the imaged surface (think of taking a photograph with a camera under sunlit conditions). Most remote sensing instruments fall into this category, obtaining pictures of visible, near-infrared and thermal infrared : Dr.

Larry Smith. Geology: Remote sensing can help map large, remote areas. This makes it possible for geologists to classify an area's rock types, study its geomorphology, and track changes caused by natural events such as floods and landslides.; Agriculture: Remote sensing is also helpful when studying vegetation.

Photographs taken remotely allow biogeographers, ecologists, agriculturalists, and Author: Amanda Briney. The main goal of this chapter is to introduce the basic physical principles used in remote sensing to monitor inland water quality and to introduce the terminology used in the rest of the book.

This chapter also summarizes the definitions, history, and categorization of bio-optical algorithms for the estimation of total suspended solids. Remote Sensing deals with the fundamental ideas underlying the rapidly growing field of remote sensing. John Schott explores energy-matter interaction, radiation propagation, data dissemination, and described the tools and procedures required to extract information from /5.

An extensive review of remote sensing principles with an emphasis on environmental applications, Fundamentals of Satellite Remote Sensing discusses a wide range of topics, from physical principles to data acquisition systems and on to visual and digital interpretation techniques.

The text focuses on the interpretation and analysis of remote. This widely adopted book introduces the fundamentals of remote sensing from an earth resource (versus engineering) perspective.

Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation, 7th Editionis designed to be primarily used in two ways: as a textbook in the introductory courses in remote sensing and image interpretation, and as a reference for the burgeoning number of practitioners who use geospatial information and analysis in their e of the wide range of academic and professional settings in which this book might be.

Remote sensing is the common name for all methods used to collect data at a distance from the object under study by some kind of recording device. The use of remote sensing techniques is increasing rapidly, finding new fields of application as technology advances in.

This article reviews various opportunities for using remote sensing data in mineral exploration and deciphers some of the terminology associated with this field.

Because of space limitations, the article is confined to applications using reflected light and does not discuss RADAR, thermal emission, or other remote sensing systems. Coastal waters are important ecological systems and vital assets for many nations.

Coastal waters are also complex, dynamic environments where a vast array of coupled biological, chemical, geological. The book first discusses terminology and principals behind remote sensing data and analyses (thus assumes no prior technical knowledge of satellite remote sensing systems and products) and then demonstrates how the combined application of remote sensing and ecological knowledge can help to address a wide array of current natural resource.
