    schema:description "Although not a textbook in itself, this book will serve as a valuable addition to existing textbooks for undergraduates and graduate students on geography, environmental and earth science courses. It will also be an essential reference for researchers and research managers at all levels using spaceborne remote sensing methods to obtain information about the Earth's land, sea, ice and atmosphere."@en ;
    schema:description "Organised as a dictionary, entries cover definitions and surveys of the principal types of remote sensing system; the concepts involved in the operation and performance of remote sensing systems; propagation and scattering of electromagnetic radiation; characterisation of the Earth's atmosphere; the orbital dynamics of satellites; brief notes on the principal space agencies, with internet addresses for up-to-date reference; remote sensing satellites including important forthcoming missions; spaceborne remote sensing instruments; concepts and techniques of image processing of remotely sensed data. As well as short technical definitions, this uniquely comprehensive data book also includes longer essays and reviews to give an overview of the subject."@en ;
