Product Description

Review

"...a good textbook at an undergraduate level for a remote sensing course." Physics in Canada

"A clear, concise introduction to a topic that will continue to grow in its importance in the earth sciences. It would be an excellent choice as a text for an advanced undergraduate course." Geophysics

Book Description

This book will form the basis of an introductory course in remote sensing of the Earth's surface and atmosphere from space using electromagnetic radiation. The second edition of this successful book has been very substantially revised and expanded. The main readership will be students and researchers in remote sensing, geography, cartography, surveying, meteorology, earth sciences and environmental sciences generally, as well as physicists, mathematicians and engineers. It will also form a valuable reference source for researchers using remote sensing techniques.

First Sentence
'Remote sensing' is, broadly but logically speaking, the collection of information about an object without making physical contact with it. Read the first page

I was fortunate enough to attend Gareth Rees' course, for which this book was initially written. As a student that always needed to get things through the brain more than once for it to stick, I can thoroughly recommend this book. It is well written, handles the mathematical treatments with enough detail to be easy to follow (but it does assume a fairly strong undergraduate mathematical background). Excellent description of Synthetic Aperture Radar techniques and written in a style that makes it quite fresh for what is fundamentally a course text book.

Physical Principles of Remote Sensing
by W. G. Rees, Gareth Rees
is one of the first books that should be chased after by anyone planning to adapt the theory of LAND STUDIES to his/her future. Required as an intorductory textbook for many university level programs, THE PRINCIPLES OF REMOTE SENSING prepares the mind for future training in earth sciences.

Great reference for remote sensing scientists and engineers. Dec 8 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book provides simple explainations with just enough equations to help understand concepts in electromagnetics, radiation interaction with atmosphere, Microwave-visible-IR systems, scattering, satellites, antennas and data processing. Great for reference or introductory course in remote sensing.

Comprehensible and helpful Aug. 6 2005
By C. M. Frey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this book during my studies, but also now I use it often to check some things. The book is written generally - it does not go too deeply into detail - but is still a good reference for a lot of questions.

Engineering Text Book for Remote Sensing July 8 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book covers a lot of the physics behind remote sensing. It is not an easy read, but it is very in depth.
