Remote Sensing in Environmental Management

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Environmental management decisions depend on measurements: without measurement, it is not known if some environmental parameter of interest is changing importantly, or how. For many environmental issues, it is important to have information that is spatially distributed, that is, mapped. Remote sensing from space, the air, or on the ground can provide maps of many important environmental parameters-information that is not available in any other way. This chapter illustrates how remote sensing can be used to further understanding of environmental problems and aid in decision making. The science and art of remote sensing are described with special attention paid to the issues of temporal and spatial scales as these determine applications of these geospatial technologies in environmental management. The chapter provides a set of concrete examples of the use of remote sensing in a diverse set of environmental applications, before concluding with suggested readings and a sample syllabus.
