Title: Principles and applications of imaging radar. Manual of remote sensing: Third edition, Volume 2

Abstract

This second volume in the Third Edition of the Manual of Remote Sensing offers a current and comprehensive survey of the theory, methods, and applications of imaging radar for geoscientists, engineers and application scientists interested in the advantages of radar remote sensing. Produced under the auspices of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, it brings together contributions from experts around the world to discuss the basic principles of imaging radars and trace the research activity--past, present, and future--across the many sciences where radar remote sensing may be applied. This book offers an invaluable snapshot of radar remote sensing technology, including radargrammetry, radar polarimetry and interferometry and its uses. It combines technical and procedural coverage of systems, data interpretation, and other fundamentals with generous coverage of practical applications in agriculture; forestry; soil moisture monitoring; geology; geomorphology and hydrology; oceanography; land use, land cover mapping and archeology.

  • This reference book contains, the principles, rules and directions needed for the mastery of the art, science and skill known as ''remote sensing.'' The 36 chapters cover the full spectrum of remote sensing science: theory; instruments; techniques; and applications.
  • This book consists of papers on the prevention and control of fires, explosions, and detonations in the hydrocarbon processing industry. Topics include: Loss analysis in the hydrocarbon processing industry, case studies of fires, explosions, and detonation, fire protection fundamentals, fire-fighting materials, causes of explosions, electrical hazards, how to handle and store fuels, how to fight hydrocarbon fires, startup and shutdown procedures, disaster planning, and inspections and investigations.
  • This book explains the diagnostic criteria and radiologic appearance of joint disease - principally arthritis. It covers the soft tissues, alignment abnormalities, bony mineralization, and abnormalities of the cartilage space of the hand; arthritis from head to foot; and the differential diagnosis of arthritis.
  • The author's introduction to remote sensing provides coverage of the subject irrespective of disciplines of study or the academic department in which remote sensing is taught. All the ''classical'' elements of aerial photographic interpretation and photogrammetry are described, but equal emphasis is placed on non-photographic sensing systems and the analysis of data from these systems using digital image processing procedures. This text includes coverage of image restoration, enhancement, classification, and data merging, and new sensor systems such as the Large Format Camera, solid-state linear arrays, the Shuttle Imaging radar systems, the Landsat Thematic Mapper, the SPOT satellite system, and themore » NOAA Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer. Also covers imaging spectrometry and lidar systems. It contains extensive illustrations.« less
