Remote sensing book 1

During the 1980s, interest in satellite remote sensing moved away from pure science and individual case studies towards purely operational applications. At the same time, the micro-computer revolution ensured that data reception and processing facilities were no longer the preserve of a small number of global centres, but became common-place installations in smaller countries and even local regional agency offices and laboratories.

As remote sensing matured, and its applications proliferated, a new type of treatment was required to ensure both that decision-makers, managers and engineers with problems to solve were informed of the available opportunities, and that scientists were provided with integrated overviews of the ever-growing need for their services.

This book, published in 1990, was written by a specially selected group of leading experts and addressed those needs by uniquely focusing on the area bounded by satellite remote sensing, pure and applied hydrological sciences, and a specific world region, namely the Mediterranean basin.
