How to Study the Earth From Space.
Boyer, Robert E.
This booklet is one in a series of instructional aids designed for use by elementary and secondary school science teachers. It reviews how the various forms of remote sensing can provide invaluable knowledge about the earth as the need for environmental information continues to increase. Remote sensing involves space photography, infrared imagery, and radar imagery, all of which are discussed and represented by example photographs made by these techniques. Nearly 60 uses of remote sensing are listed, including the detection of plant disease, weather studies and predictions, detection of air pollution, water pollution, thermal pollution, and the locating of water and energy resources. An annotated list of resource materials is provided. (PR)
