To address the computational requirements of time-critical applications, researchers have ...

  • Signal and Image Processing for Remote Sensing

    Most data from satellites are in image form, thus most books in the remote sensing field deal exclusively with image processing. However, signal processing can contribute significantly in extracting information from the remotely sensed waveforms or time series data. Pioneering the combination of the two processes, Signal and Image Processing for ...

  • Subsea Control and Data Acquisition

    The biennial conferences of the Society for Underwater Technology have achieved an excellent reputation for the quality of their presentations, which cover topics of the most acute current interest, as well as those at the forefront of review and development. The 1994 conference on Subsea Control and Data Acquisition formed no exception, ...

  • Mass Flow Controller Market Statistics (Report)

    A monthly report that looks at trends of the mass flow controller (MFC) for the microelectronics industry. The data is based on direct inputs from the major MFC ...

  • Observing Systems for Atmospheric Composition

    The new challenge in atmospheric chemistry is to understand the intercontinental transport and transformation of gases and aerosols. To address this issue, a global observations systems network of ground based sites and aircraft measurement campaigns are highly requested by scientists. The book describes the latest methods for observations from ...

  • Geographic Information Science

    This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Geographic Information Science, GIScience 2008, held in Park City, UT, USA, in September 2008.The 24 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 77 submissions. Among the traditional topics addressed are spatial relations, geographic ...

  • Desertification and Risk Analysis Using High and Medium Resolution Satellite Data

    This publication collects the results of a practical experience of survey, through the direct control of satellite images from high to medium resolution, over areas subjected to desertification problems. The problems of the local population are closely tied to the equilibrium in the management of the territory, which is compromised by the ...

  • Satellite Altimetry for Geodesy, Geophysics and Oceanography

    This volume covers a broad range of altimetry applications, including marine gravity and geoid, sea level change, ocean tide modeling, ocean circulations, marine plate tectonics, mesoscale eddies and bathymetry predictions. Virtually all disciplines of earth sciences are touched upon through the technique of satellite altimetry. Readers will find ...

  • 3D Geo-Information Sciences

    The book contains papers that focus explicitly on the last achievements (methods, algorithms, models, systems) with respect to the Third Dimension. Motivated by the rapid developments in 3D, the organised workshop aims at attracting the best world-wide research in the following areas: 3D geo information requirements (based on analysis of ...

  • Earth Gravity Field from Space - from Sensors to Earth Sciences

    The ESA explorer core mission GOCE, to be launched in 2006, will enhance our knowledge of the global static gravity field and of the geoid by orders of magnitude. The U.S. satellite gravity mission GRACE (2002-2006) is currently measuring, in addition, the temporal variations of the gravity field. With these new data a whole range of fascinating ...

  • A Software-Defined GPS and Galileo Receiver

    Satellite navigation receivers are used to receive, process, and decode space-based navigation signals, such as those provided by the GPS constellation of satellites. There is an increasing need for a unified open platform that will enable enhanced receiver development and design, as well as cost-effective testing procedures for various ...

  • Methods and Applications of Signal Processing in Seismic Network Operations

    This book deals with various theoretical and practical methods for real-time automatic signal processing in local (and regional) seismic networks and associated software developments, including extraction of small seismic signal from noisy observation by piecewise modeling and self-organizing state space modeling, determination of arrival time of ...

  • Object-Based Image Analysis and Treaty Verification

    The availability of new high resolution satellite data brings with it the need for new image analysis methods. Traditional pixel-oriented algorithms do not give credit to the spatial coherence of high resolution imagery. In particular, for detection and classification of man-made structures, object-based procedures are much more appropriate. The ...

  • Strong Motion Instrumentation for Civil Engineering Structures

    Most of the existing strong motion instrumentation on civil engineering structures is installed and operated as federal, state, university, industry or private applications, in many cases operated as a closed system. This hampers co-operation and data exchange, hampering the acquisition of strong motion and structural data, sometimes even ...

  • Advanced Image Processing Techniques for Remotely Sensed Hyperspectral Data

    The main objective of this book is to apprise the reader of the use of a number of tools and techniques for a variety of image processing tasks, namely Independent Component Analysis (ICA), Mutual Information (MI), Markov Random Field (MRF) Models and Support Vector Machines (SVM). Typical applications considered are feature extraction, image ...

  • Future Satellite Gravimetry and Earth Dynamics

    Currently, a first generation of dedicated satellite missions for the precise mapping of the Earth’s gravity field is in orbit (CHAMP, GRACE, and soon GOCE). The gravity data from these satellite missions provide us with very new information on the dynamics of planet Earth. In particular, on the mass distribution in the Earth’s interior, the ...
