This third edition of the bestselling Remote Sensing for Geologists: A Guide to Image Interpretation is now titled Remote Sensing for Geoscientists: Image Analysis and Integration. The title change reflects that this edition applies to a broad spectrum of geosciences, not just geology; stresses that remote sensing has become more than photointerpretation; and emphasizes integration of multiple remote sensing technologies to solve Earth science problems. The text reviews systems and applications, explains what to look for when analyzing imagery, and provides abundant case histories to illustrate the integration and application of these tools.
See What’s New in the Second Edition:
The book covers how to initiate a project, including determining the objective, choosingthe right tools, and selecting imagery. It describes techniques used in geologic mapping and mineral and hydrocarbon exploration, image analysis used in mine development and petroleum exploitation, site evaluation, groundwaterdevelopment, surface water monitoring, geothermal resource exploitation, and logistics. It also demonstrates how imageryis used to establish environmental baselines; monitor land, air, and water quality; maphazards; and determine the effects of global warming.
The many examples of geologic mapping on other planets and the moon highlight how to analyze planetary surface processes, map stratigraphy, and locate resources. The book then examines remote sensing and the public, geographic information systems and Google Earth, and how imagery is used by the media, in the legal system, in public relations, and by individuals.
Readers should come away with a good understanding of what is involved in image analysis and interpretation and should be ableto recognize and identify geologic features of interest. Having read this book, they should be able to effectively use imagery in petroleum, mining, groundwater, surface water, engineering, and environmental projects.
"... a well organized and highly readable overview of many of the most powerful and significant applications of "practical" remote sensing. ... The book is sure to clarify concepts both old and new while stimulating interest in the new. ... The great difficulty in a book of this type is to stay relevant in a world of ever changing technology. The author has done an excellent job in doing this, in a clear and readable manner. I feel that this book will become the standard reference for practitioners and students alike."
―Dr Ralph N.Baker, Independent Consulting Geologist, Houston, Texas
"... provides an earth scientist with a very efficient, one-stop information shop that covers not only the standard reflected light, thermal, and radar systems, but also the very important geophysical sensors such as potential field, EM, GPR, side-scan sonar, etc. ... an important contribution for earth scientists trying to understand how remote sensing imagery and vegetation can be used to create better maps of the earth’s geology."
―James Ellis, Ellis GeoSpatial
"Dr. Prost has clearly and thoroughly explained the wide variety of methods and applications ... Geoscientists will find this comprehensive guide to the interpretation and integration of remote sensing data to be a welcome addition to their personal libraries."
―Dr. Dietmar (Deet) Schumacher, Vice President for Geosciences and technology, E&P Field Services
"A new book by Prost is an amazing guide to the field of remote sensing, and it will remain so for years. Difficult to imagine, but the author was able to collect so huge amount of information that his writing can be judged as an ultimate reference volume irrespectively of which particular technique the reader is interested in. Well, it was almost impossible to achieve such brilliance, but this has been done successfully.
Speaking generally, the reviewer cannot imagine a book on remote sensing better than that written by Prost."
―Dmitry A. Ruban, Rostov am Don, Paläontologie Allgemein
