This book shows how remote sensing impacts other areas of science, technology, and human activity, by displaying a selected number of high quality contributions dealing with different remote sensing applications.
Nowadays it is hard to find areas of human activity and development that have not profited from or contributed to remote sensing. Natural, physical and social activities find in remote sensing a common ground for interaction and development.
Twenty two chapters have been carefully collected and distributed in four areas.
The first part deals with land cover applications, and contains applications in vegetation indices, crop and pest monitoring, rainfall and fire relationship with vegetation, change detection, soil salinization, modeling water and heat regimes, catastrophe assessment and lava flow mapping.
The second part contains contributions on climate and atmosphere, including carbon and water dynamics, ocean evaporation, and atmospheric aerosols and clouds.
The third part presents oceans and cryosphere applications that include aquatic vegetation, oil spill assessment, coral reef habitat mapping, water source predictability from snow maps, cryosphere study, and maritime search and rescue.
The last part presents contributions dealing with human activity, including population estimation, archaeology, urban growth, medicine and healthcare and military applications.
