Remote Sensing

  • Light Scattering Reviews, Volume 11by Alexander Kokhanovsky

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 229.00

    This is the eleventh volume in the series Light Scattering Reviews, devoted to current knowledge of light scattering problems and both experimental and theoretical research techniques related to their solution. The focus of this volume is to describe modern advances in radiative transfer and light scattering optics. This book brings together the... more...

  • Remote Sensing and Water Resourcesby A. Cazenave; N. Champollion; J. Benveniste; J. Chen

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00

    This book is a collection of overview articles showing how space-based observations, combined with hydrological modeling, have considerably improved our knowledge of the continental water cycle and its sensitivity to climate change. Two main issues are highlighted: (1) the use in combination of space observations for monitoring water storage changes... more...

  • Multi-Antenna Synthetic Aperture Radarby Wen-Qin Wang

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 183.95

    Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is a well-known remote sensing technique, but conventional single-antenna SAR is inherently limited by the minimum antenna area constraint. Although there are still technical issues to overcome, multi-antenna SAR offers many benefits, from improved system gain to increased degrees-of-freedom and system flexibility. ... more...

  • GIS-based Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciencesby Atsuyuki Okabe

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 132.95

    Studies in the humanities and the social sciences can be enhanced through the use of geographic information systems (GIS). However, this computer-aided method of analysis is worthless unless researchers can devote the time necessary to learn what it is, what it can do, and how to use it. Resulting from a six-year project entitled Spatial Information... more...

  • Microwave Propagation and Remote Sensingby Pranab Kumar Karmakar

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 165.95

    Because prevailing atmospheric/troposcopic conditions greatly influence radio wave propagation above 10 GHz, the unguided propagation of microwaves in the neutral atmosphere can directly impact many vital applications in science and engineering. These include transmission of intelligence, and radar and radiometric applications used to probe the atmosphere,... more...

  • Global Forest Monitoring from Earth Observationby Frederic Achard; Matthew C. Hansen

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 155.95

    Forests provide a large range of beneficial services, including tangible ones such as timber and recreation, and intangible services such as climate regulation, biodiversity, and watershed protection. On the other hand, forests can also be considered roadblocks to progress that occupy space more productively used for agriculture, making consideration... more...

  • Understanding Earth Observationby Domenico Solimini

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    This volume addresses the physical foundation of remote sensing. The basic grounds are presented in close association with the kinds of environmental targets to monitor and with the observing techniques. The book aims at plugging the quite large gap between the thorough and quantitative description of electromagnetic waves interacting with the Earth's... more...

  • Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suiteby Keith D. Hutchison; Arthur P. Cracknell

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 194.95

    The Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) is the next-generation multispectral imaging instrument to fly on US operational, polar-orbiting meteorological satellites. VIIRS will gather data across 22 spectral bands and be used to create products for a variety of applications including weather forecasting and climate change studies. VIIRS... more...

  • Remote Sensing of Land Use and Land Coverby Chandra P. Giri

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 171.95

    Filling the need for a comprehensive book that covers both theory and application, Remote Sensing of Land Use and Land Cover: Principles and Applications provides a synopsis of how remote sensing can be used for land-cover characterization, mapping, and monitoring from the local to the global scale. With contributions by leading scientists from... more...

  • Advanced Location-Based Technologies and Servicesby Hassan A. Karimi

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 154.95

    Due to the rapid increase in the number of mobile device users worldwide, location-based services (LBSs) have become pervasive, and the demand for them will continue to grow. Exploring recent changes in the technology and its uses, Advanced Location-Based Technologies and Services takes an in-depth look at new and existing technologies, techniques,... more...
