'A magnificent achievement. A who's who of contemporary remote sensing have produced an engaging, wide-ranging and scholarly review of the field in just one volume' - Professor Paul Curran, Vice-Chancellor, Bournemouth University Remote Sensing acquires and interprets small or large-scale data about the Earth from a distance. Using a wide range of spatial, spectral, temporal, and radiometric scales Remote Sensing is a large and diverse field for which this Handbook will be the key research reference. Organized in four key sections: - Interactions of Electromagnetic Radiation with the Terrestrial Environment: chapters on Visible, Near-IR and Shortwave IR; Middle IR (3-5 micrometers); Thermal IR; Microwave - Digital sensors and Image Characteristics: chapters on Sensor Technology; Coarse Spatial Resolution Optical Sensors; Medium Spatial Resolution Optical Sensors; Fine Spatial Resolution Optical Sensors; Video Imaging and Multispectral Digital Photography; Hyperspectral Sensors; Radar and Passive Microwave Sensors; Lidar - Remote Sensing Analysis - Design and Implementation: chapters on Image Pre-Processing; Ground Data Collection; Integration with GIS; Quantitative Models in Remote Sensing; Validation and accuracy assessment; - Remote Sensing Analysis - Applications: LITHOSPHERIC SCIENCES: chapters on Topography; Geology; Soils; PLANT SCIENCES: Vegetation; Agriculture; HYDROSPHERIC and CRYSOPHERIC SCIENCES: Hydrosphere: Fresh and Ocean Water; Cryosphere; GLOBAL CHANGE AND HUMAN ENVIRONMENTS: Earth Systems; Human Environments & Links to the Social Sciences; Real Time Monitoring Systems and Disaster Management; Land Cover Change Illustrated throughout, an essential resource for the analysis of remotely sensed data, the SAGE Handbook of Remote Sensing provides researchers with a definitive statement of the core concepts and methodologies in the discipline.

Author Biography - Timothy A. Warner

Timothy A. Warner is Professor of Geology and Geography at West Virginia University, in Morgantown, West Virginia, USA. He received a BSc (Hons) in Geology from the University of Cape Town, and a PhD from Purdue University in Remote Sensing. His research specialties include the spatial properties of images, high resolution remote sensing, and lidar. He served as a founding board member and Secretary of AmericaView. He received the 2006 Outstanding Contributions Award from the Remote Sensing Special ty Group (RSSG) of the Association of American Geographers, and the 2006 Boeing Award for Best Paper in Image Analysis and Interpretation from the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. He has had two Fulbright appointments, one at the University of Louis Pasteur, in Strasbourg, France (2007) and a second at the Universidad de Concepcion, Chile (2013). He served as a co-editor of Progress in Physical Geography (2010 - 2014). He currently serves on the editorial board of Geographical Compass, is a co-editor of Remote Sensing Letters, and editor in chief of the International Journal of Remote Sensing. M. Duane Nellis began serving as the University of Idaho's 17th president on July 1, 2009. As the university's chief executive officer, President M. Duane Nellis provides robust and engaging leadership for the University of Idaho by: supporting 42 statewide extension offices and university center locations in Boise, Coeur d'Alene and Idaho Falls; working with the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho) program to ensure that medical education in Idaho is supported, along with the 20 first-year medical students on the Moscow campus each year; and by being actively engaged with the university alumni, friends, donors, faculty, staff and students around the world to create a university that is more entrepreneurial, sustainable, international, interdisciplinary and diverse. Previously, Dr. Nellis served as provost and senior vice president of Kansas State University and oversaw 12 deans and 10 other units, including the offices of the vice provost for information technology services and the vice president for research. Dr. Nellis is recognized nationally and internationally for his research utilizing satellite data and geographic information systems to analyze various dimensions of the earth's land surface. President M. Duane Nellis is a native of the Northwest. He was born in Spokane, Wash. He met and married his wife, Ruthie, while pursuing his bachelor's degree in earth sciences/geography at Montana State University. He received his master's and doctoral degrees in geography at Oregon State University.
