Introduction to Remote Sensing
by James B. Campbell, Randolph H. Wynne

A leading text for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, this book introduces widely used forms of remote sensing imagery and their applications in plant sciences, hydrology, earth sciences, and land use analysis. The text provides comprehensive coverage of principal topics and serves as a framework for organizing the vast amount of remote sensing information available on the Web. Including case studies and review questions, the book’s four sections and 21 chapters are carefully designed as independent units that instructors can select from as needed for their courses. Illustrations include 29 color plates and over 400 black-and-white figures.

Remote Sensing of Vegetation
by Hamlyn G Jones, Robin A Vaughan

Remote sensing is becoming an increasingly important tool for agriculturalists, ecologists, and land managers for the study of Earth’s agricultural and natural vegetation, and can be applied to further our understanding of key environmental issues, including climate change and ecosystem management. This timely introduction offers an accessible yet rigorous treatment of the basics of remote sensing at all scales, illustrating its practical application to the study of vegetation. Despite a quantitative approach, the advanced mathematics and complex models common in modern remote sensing literature is demystified through clear explanations that emphasise the key underlying principles, and the core physical aspects are explained in the biological context of vegetation and its adaptation to its specific environment. Various techniques and instruments are addressed, making this a valuable source of reference, and the advantages and disadvantages of these are further illustrated through worked examples and case studies. · Rigorous physical and mathematical principles presented in a way readily understood by those without a strong mathematical background · Boxes throughout summarize key information and concepts · The student is directed to carefully chosen further reading articles, allowing them to explore key topics in more detail Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Remote Sensing of Vegetation features: For Students: · Links to useful websites For lecturers: · Figures from the book in electronic format, ready to download

Radar Remote Sensing of Planetary Surfaces
by Bruce A. Campbell

This introduction to the use of radar for remote sensing of natural surfaces provides the reader with a thorough grounding in practical applications, focusing particularly on terrestrial studies that may be extended to other planets. An historical overview of the subject is followed by an introduction to the nomenclature and methodology pertaining to radar data collection, image interpretation and surface roughness analysis. The author presents a summary (illustrated with examples from the natural environment) of theoretical explanations for the backscatter properties of continuous rough surfaces, collections of discrete objects, and layered terrain.

Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation
by Thomas Lillesand, Ralph W. Kiefer, Jonathan Chipman

Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation, 7th Edition is designed to be primarily used in two ways: as a textbook in the introductory courses in remote sensing and image interpretation, and as a reference for the burgeoning number of practitioners who use geospatial information and analysis in their work. Because of the wide range of academic and professional settings in which this book might be used, we have made the discussion “discipline neutral.” In short, anyone involved in geospatial data acquisition and analysis should find this book to be a valuable text and reference.
