Land Remote Sensing and Global Environmental Change: The Science of ASTER and MODIS is an edited compendium of contributions dealing with ASTER and MODIS satellite sensors aboard NASA's Terra and Aqua platforms launched as part of the Earth Observing System fleet in 1999 and 2002 respectively. This volume is divided into six sections. The first three sections provide insights into the history, philosophy, and evolution of the EOS, ASTER and MODIS instrument designs and calibration mechanisms, and the data systems components used to manage and provide the science data and derived products. The latter three sections exclusively deal with ASTER and MODIS data products and their applications, and the future of these two classes of remotely sensed observations.

From the reviews: "This book is directed to those involved in monitoring land surfaces using remotely sensed data ! . provides a solid reference to the current science and application of the ASTER and MODIS sensors. This book encompasses both the technical aspects and the wide range of applications of both sensors. ! provides an excellent reference for the technical specifications and consideration in these sensors. ! Those who use ASTER or MODIS imagery for land observations should consider finding room on their bookshelves for this book." (Anthony L. Nguy-Robertson, Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing, January, 2012)
