Environmental Remote Sensing from Regional to Global Scales Edited by Giles Foody University College, Swansea, UK & Paul Curran University of Southampton, UK Remote sensing by satellites provides scientists with powerful means of analysing the terrestrial environment in fields as diverse as meteorology, agriculture, town planning or ecology. Allied to the powerful computer-based methodologies of Geographic Information Systems and image processing and cartographic techniques, perhaps its most important aspect is the way Environmental Remote Sensing (ERS) can allow synoptic interpretation of complex geographical phenomena from global to local scales. This book provides a benchmark collection of papers to demonstrate the flexibility and power of ERS techniques in a variety of contexts and scales. To achieve this end, a group of leading specialists have been invited to contribute surveys of the field. A high level of technical expertise is not required, making the book accessible to the research scientist, or student or professional wishing to assess the application of these techniques to his/her own field of study.
