A guide to image interpretation, this book contains detailed color plates and tables that compare satellite imaging systems, list remote sensing web sites, and detail photointerpretation equipment. It includes case histories of the search for petroleum and mineral deposits and examines engineering uses of remote sensing. The volume comprises four sections: project initiation; exploration techniques; exploitation and engineering remote sensing; and environmental concerns. They combine to provide readers with a solid foundation of what image interpretation is and enables them to recognize features of interest and effectively use imagery in projects for the petroleum, mining, or groundwater industries.

There has been phenomenal growth in the field of remote sensing over the last two to three decades. It has been applied in the fields of geology, mineral exploration, forestry, agriculture, hydrology, soils, land use etc. - that is, in all pursuits of sciences dealing with the features, processes, and phenomena operating at the earth's surface. The status of geological remote sensing has rapidly advanced and the scientific literature is scattered. The aim of the present book is to systematically discuss the specific requirements of geological remote sensing, to summarize the techniques of remote sensing data collection and interpretation, and to integrate the technique into geoexploration. The main conceptual features of the book are: - To combine various aspects of geological remote sensing, ranging from the laboratory spectra of minerals and rocks to aerial and space-borne remote sensmg. - To integrate photogeology into remote sensing. - To promote remote sensing as a tool in integrated geoexploration. - To elucidate the wide-spectrum geoscientific applications of remote sensing, ranging from meso- to global scale. The book has been written to satisfy the needs of mainly graduate students and active research workers interested in applied earth sciences. It is primarily concept -oriented rather than system- or module-oriented.

Aims to present remote sensing as it applies to environmental monitoring. It features mineral and petroleum remote-sensing. There is a focus on multispectral applications and digital photogrammetry. Ratio codes and brightness codes are included in an appendix. This has reduced the spectra of minerals to simple, one-digit-per-band codes, helping the user select the best bands or ratios to highlight a mineral. Imaging gases, especially methane, have been included. With the book, students can perform elevation extraction from digitized stereo pairs. Case studies appear throughout the text, allowing students to see how remote-sensing is used in petroleum and mining companies.
