Remote Sensing: The View from Above. Know Your Environment.
Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, PA.
This publication identifies some of the general concepts of remote sensing and explains the image collection process and computer-generated reconstruction of the data. Monitoring the ecological collapse in coral reefs, weather phenomena like El Nino/La Nina, and U.S. Space Shuttle-based sensing projects are some of the areas for which remote sensing currently is being used. Remote sensing is also very effective at monitoring human actions from an environmental standpoint. (YDS)
