Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to on-site observation, especially the Earth. Remote sensing is used in numerous fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth science disciplines (for example, hydrology, ecology, meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, geology); it.

Remote sensing in geology is remote sensing used in the geological sciences as a data acquisition method complementary to field observation, because it allows mapping of geological characteristics of regions without physical contact with the areas being explored.

About one-fourth of the Earth's total surface area is exposed land where information is ready to be extracted from detailed earth. Advanced Remote Sensing: Terrestrial Information Extraction and Applications, Second Edition, is a thoroughly updated application-based reference that provides a single source on the mathematical concepts necessary for remote sensing data gathering and assimilation.

It presents state-of-the-art techniques for estimating land surface variables. Abstract: Hyperspectral imaging is a technology that has been used in remote sensing to study planetary surfaces for over 20 years. Hyperspectral cameras (or imaging spectrometers) have a high spatial resolution (~ 1–30 m) coupled with regular sampling (every ~ 4–15 nm) of a broad spectral range, which can cover wavelengths ranging from ultraviolet (~ μm) to thermal infrared (~ 12 μm).

Recent Books in Geoscience and Remote Sensing. The technology engages electromagnetic sensors to measure and monitor changes in the earth’s surface and atmosphere. The book opens with an introduction to the history of remote sensing, starting from when the phrase was first coined.
