Remote sensing
Abstract
Remote sensing involves the use of airborne and space-imaging systems to inventory and monitor earth resources. Broadly defined, remote sensing is any methodology employed to study the characteristics of objects from a distance. Using various remote sensing devices, we remotely collect data that can be analyzed to obtain information about the objects, areas, or phenomena of interest. This chapter discusses sensor systems that record energy over a broad rant of the electromagnetic spectrum, from ultraviolet to microwave wavelengths.
