For nearly three decades there has been a phenomenal growth in the field of Remote Sensing. The second edition of this widely acclaimed book has been fully revised and updated. The reader will find a wide range of information on various aspects of geological remote sensing, ranging from laboratory spectra of minerals and rocks, ground truth, to aerial and space-borne remote sensing.
This volume describes the integration of photogeology into remote sensing as well as how remote sensing is used as a tool of geo-exploration. It also covers a wide spectrum of geoscientific applications of remote sensing ranging from meso- to global scale.
The subject matter is presented at a basic level, serving students as an introductory text on remote sensing. The main part of the book will also be of great value to active researchers.

From the reviews:
"This book is mainly intended for graduate students and research workers ‘interested in applied Earth sciences’. ... it has very useful, brief descriptions of subjects ... . There are figures on most pages, which considerably help the understanding of the subject ... . The index is very good ... . Libraries should definitely purchase it as a useful reference book, especially with its more than usual references to tropical countries ... ." (R.B.King, The Photogrammetric Record, Vol. 18 (104), 2003)
From the reviews of the second edition:
"This is a useful book for teaching remote sensing and how it can be used in geology in particular. ... The book is divided into 16 very interesting chapters. ... The appendices at the end are very good in explaining what is meant by color along with other valuable items. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who is teaching remote sensing for geologists." (Fouad Michael, American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Vol. 87 (12), 2003)
