  • Global Mapping of Human Settlement: Experiences, Data Sets and Prospects

    The use of remote sensors for human settlement mapping and monitoring holds great promise for numerous fields of study, including urban planning and global environmental change and sustainability. While the potential for this technology is difficult to measure, achieving useful results at a regional or global level is but a recent accomplishment. ...

  • Kenya: Atlas of Our Changing Environment

    Through the use of satellite data, photographs, graphics and site-specific case studies, this 160-page atlas highlights environmental change in Kenya. It looks at the country's mountains, forests, water bodies and national parks, chronicling the evolution of the country's environment over the last few decades and the ecological challenges and ...

  • 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 ...

  • Radar Interferometry

    This volume is devoted to the Persistent Scatterer Technique, the latest development in radar interferometric data processing. Using this technique, millimetric displacements can be observed at hundreds of thousands of targets that are affected only slightly from temporal and geometric decorrelation, such as the walls and the roofs of houses, lamp ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Electron Crystallography

    During the last decade we have been witness to several exciting achievements in electron crystallography. This includes structural and charge density studies on organic molecules complicated inorganic and metallic materials in the amorphous, nano-, meso- and quasi-crystalline state and also development of new software, tailor-made for the special ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Spectroscopy from Space

    Many satellites have recently been launched or are in preparation, which operate in the microwave to IR ranges, the main objective being to observe the earth's atmosphere or interstellar clouds. Analysis of the data they supply requires extensive laboratory work because we still only have sufficiently accurate data (line positions, ...
