Description
Summary:<p> Advanced Remote Sensing: Terrestrial Information Extraction and Applications, Second Edition, is a thoroughly updated application-based reference that provides a single source on the mathematical concepts necessary for remote sensing data gathering and assimilation. It presents state-of-the-art techniques for estimating land surface variables from a variety of data types, including optical sensors like RADAR and LIDAR. The book provides scientists in a number of different fields, including geography, geophysics, geology, atmospheric science, environmental science, planetary science and ecology with access to critically-important data extraction techniques and their virtually unlimited applications.</p> <p>While rigorous enough for the most experienced of scientists, the techniques presented are well designed and integrated, making the book's content intuitive and practical in its implementation.</p> Provides a comprehensive overview of many practical methods and algorithms Offers descriptions of the principles and procedures of the state-of-the-art in remote sensing Includes real-world case studies and end-of-chapter exercises Contains thoroughly revised chapters, newly developed applications and updated examples
