Fundamentals of Satellite Remote Sensing 

Chuvieco, Emilio

Preference :

The information being collected by sensors onboard Earth observation satellites has revolutionized our knowledge of the planet’s environment. The growing concern about the present environmental problems and future sustainability of our planet has spurred great interest in monitoring the main variables of the Earth system. We need to gain a better understanding of the biogeochemical cycles to enhance our efforts to mitigate or adapt to future changes. Satellite remote sensing is a particularly valuable tool to collect critical information about the state of the environment. The impacts of climate change, deforestation, desertification, fire, floods, and other natural and man-made disturbances require an up-to-date, spatially comprehensive, and global source of geographical data.
