From the reviews:

"This collection of conference papers surveys the rapidly expanding area of research on observing global change in the Earth system. Remote-sensing applications to land use, coastal and marine ecosystems, snow and ice, and natural hazards, as well as geodetic and geospatial data processing techniques employed in global change research, are surveyed in 19 chapters by an international group of more than 60 authors. ... recommend this book to researchers in remote sensing and global change studies. There is valuable, reasonably current research presented here." (John A. Knox, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, July, 2012)
