The latest practical uses for remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) for definitive site evaluation. This comprehensive publication also features 35 state-of-the-art color graphics.
17 peer-reviewed papers from an international team of scientists and engineers are divided into 5 areas:
Two keynote papers discuss remote sensing and GIS guidelines for geological and environmental site characterization, environmental monitoring and management.
Remote Sensing Applications -- Alternative systems and image processing as well as geological mapping and environmental monitoring data integration techniques are addressed in three papers. Case studies are included.
An extensive Geographic Information System section features six papers on such issues as environmental restoration strategies, ground water exploration and management, and urban growth monitoring in developing countries.
Site characterization and the use of innovative geomatic techniques are explored in three papers.
A final section addresses developing standards and their uses in three papers and includes comprehensive appendices on glossary terms, additional readings, and current specific standards for remote sensing, geographic information systems and site characterization.
An invaluable resource for remote sensing specialists and GIS experts, engineers and scientists involved in site characterization and planning, environmental scientists and consultants in superfund cleanup.
