Elachi, Charles

Introduction To The Physics and Techniques of Remote Sensing

€ 220.95

The first edition of Introduction to the Physics and Techniques of Remote Sensing was a comprehensive overview of the basics behind remote sensing physics, techniques, and technology. This Second Edition builds on that overview through extensive updates, additions, and expansions in content and the replacement of almost 50% of the figures.
