Advanced Remote Sensing is an application-based reference that provides a single source of 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 such as RADAR and LIDAR. Scientists in a number of different fields including geography, geology, atmospheric science, environmental science, planetary science and ecology will have access to critically-important data extraction techniques and their virtually unlimited applications. While rigorous enough for the most experienced of scientists, the techniques are well designed and integrated, making the book’s content intuitive, clearly presented, and practical in its implementation.

Quotes and reviews

"The volume’s editors adeptly compiled chapters from many authors to create a reference that is easy to navigate and read…a thorough reference for a broad range of state-of-the-art remote sensing techniques with a focus on creating biophysical parameters from remotely sensed data and it fills a niche among remote sensing textbooks and applications."--The Quarterly Review of Biology, June 2014
"The treatment here is highly quantitative and rigorously technical, but also accessible to students at the upper undergraduate and first-year graduate levels."--Reference and Research Book News, December 2012
