ground remote sensing Books

  • Polar Remote Sensing

    This work will be a comprehensive multidisciplinary discussion of the applications of satellite remote sensing - advanced ground-based remote sensing, as both are related to polar science and operations. Discussion is provided on the various passive and active remote sensor types in sufficient detail to be self-contained, with numerous references ...

  • Dayside and Polar Cap Aurora

    The auroral emissions in the upper atmosphere of the polar regions of the Earth are evidence of the capture of energetic particles from the Sun, streaming by the Earth as the solar wind. These auroral emissions, then, are a window to outer space, and can provide us with valuable information about electrodynamic coupling processes between the solar ...

  • Geospatial Technology for Earth Observation

    Earth Observation interacts with space, remote sensing, communication, and information technologies, and plays an increasingly significant role in Earth related scientific studies, resource management, homeland security, topographic mapping, and development of a healthy, sustainable environment and community. Geospatial Technology for Earth ...

  • Precipitation: Advances in Measurement, Estimation and Prediction

    The book is based on selected contributions presented at the (General) Session on the 'Observation, Prediction and Verification of Precipitation' of the 2006 EGU General Assembly held in Vienna, Austria. It focuses on current advances in the field of precipitation measurement (i.e. instrumentation), estimation (i.e. remote sensing) and prediction ...

  • Principles of Snow Hydrology

    Principles of Snow Hydrology describes the factors that control the accumulation, melting and runoff of water from seasonal snowpacks over the surface of the earth. The book addresses not only the basic principles governing snow in the hydrologic cycle, but also the latest applications of remote sensing, and techniques for modeling streamflow from ...

  • Restoration and Recovery of Shallow Eutrophic Lake Ecosystems in the Netherlands

    This book contains the proceedings of a two-day symposium held in Amsterdam (18 and 19 April 1991). There are 26 scientific papers divided into three parts. Part One presents the results of a ten-year study carried out by the multi-disciplinary WQL working group (Water Quality research Loosdrecht lakes) on the Loosdrecht lakes. The central ...

  • Aerial Mapping: Methods and Applications, Second Edition

    Building on the foundation of the bestselling first edition, Aerial Mapping: Methods and Applications, Second Edition provides you with a practical understanding of aerial photography, remote sensing, and photogrammetric mapping. The content is deliberately semi-technical and processes are discussed in a manner easily accessible to anyone ...
