Using a systems analysis approach and extensive case studies,
Environmental Remote Sensing and Systems Analysis shows how remote
sensing can be used to support environmental decision making. It
presents a multidisciplinary framework and the latest remote
sensing tools to understand environmental impacts, management
complexity, and policy implications.
Organized into three parts, this full-color book provides
systematic coverage of water quality monitoring, air quality
monitoring, and monitoring of land use patterns and degradation.
Chapters elaborate on the interactions between human and natural
systems, addressing questions such as "what are the regional
impacts of an oil spill in coastal environments?" and "how does
urbanization affect the rate of infiltration of water at urban
rural interfaces?" Throughout, contributors discuss new techniques
and methods for measurements, mathematical modeling, and image
- Compares data mining, machine learning, and image processing
methods to help you select the best one for your needs
- Incorporates ground-based monitoring networks as part of air
and water quality management
- Emphasizes environmental information management, with proper
integration of GPS, GIS, and existing environmental databases
- Shows how modeling can be used for decision making
- Examines how remote sensing can be used to understand
environmental health implications and to shape environmental
- Demonstrates how systems analysis can be used to aid in
environmental policy analysis
- Discusses opportunities for integrated field and laboratory
studies in remote sensing education
A useful reference for students, professionals, scientists, and
policy makers in environmental management and informatics as well
as environmental, agricultural, forest, and sustainability
sciences, this book shows readers how to monitor air, soil, and
water quality using state-of-the-art remote sensing tools."
