About the Authors
  • Remote sensing is used in some way by all earth and atmospheric scientists. This book provides a unique resource to all aspects of remote sensing for both the expert and nonexpert. Organized as a dictionary, it contains over 700 alphabetically-arranged and cross-referenced entries on how remote sensing works, what kinds of data are available, and the large number of satellites and instruments from which the information is obtained. As well as short technical definitions, the book also includes longer essays and reviews to give a complete overview of the subject. It will be essential for researchers and research managers at all levels using spaceborne remote sensing methods to obtain information about the earth's land, sea, ice and atmosphere. It will also serve as a valuable addition to existing textbooks for undergraduate and graduate students in geography, environmental and earth science courses that include an element of remote sensing.

    • No other dictionaries exist in remote sensing
    • Subject crosses many disciplinary boundaries in the earth sciences: remote sensing is used in some way by all earth and atmospheric scientists

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The noble intent of this book is not only to document and provide information on all of the remote sensing acronyms (nonmilitary), but to provide reference data associated with remote sensing that are often disparately located....The information provided on a specific topic is quite detailed and developed with the needs of the remote sensing specialist in mind...[a] well-devised, well-written book." Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

    "The treatment is concise, consistent and well cross-referenced, making it eminently easy to dip in and out of. Anyone with aspirations to having an up-to-date remote sensing library will want to have this." Geological Magazine

    "This is an excellent text for remote sensing...a handy source of brief definitions of terms and concepts commonly encountered in the field of remote sensing." California Geology

    "The Remote Sensing Data Book is a refreshing;y well complied volume and in this jargon-dominated" industry is an essential addition to the shelves of every remote sensing establishment...over-all it can serve a wide audience...My overall impression is that the book has been well conceived and presented, and I will readily recommend this volume widely, While treasuring and frequently using our own copy." Pure appl. Geophys
