Solferino, 1859 : the battle that won Italy its independence by Richard Brooks( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
The battle of Solferino, fought during the Franco-Austrian War of 1859, was the largest European battle since Leipzig in 1813. In the presence of three crowned heads of state-- Napoleon III of France, Emperor Franz-Joseph of Austria, and Victor Emmanuel II of Piedmont-Sardinia (later the King of all Italy)-- the armies clashed together in a bitterly fought contest that would leave more than 40,000 dead. As a crucial climax to the Second Italian War of Independence, this title covers the build-up to the battle, including actions at Montebello, Palestro, and Magenta that led to the decisive moment of the campaign. Full-color, battle-scene artwork and detailed maps illustrate this comprehensive account of the commanders, armies, plans, and aftermath of one of the bloodiest battles of the period

Evaluating forest volume estimation at Barksdale Air Force Base using Lidar and multispectral imagery by Richard Brooks( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Estimating timber volume from a field perspective, with field plots occasionally falling within remote and inaccessible areas, can be a costly and timely endeavor. Remote sensing, with its ability to record information at both the local and regional scale, offers an alternative to traditional field based measurements. Studies have shown that remotely sensed vegetation biomass indices (e.g. NDVI) derived from mid-spatial resolution digital imagery (e.g. Landsat TM, 30-meters), after being corrected for atmospheric effects, topographical differences and shadow, were highly correlated with timber volume. With the recent advent of high spatial resolution digital imagery from the IKONOS and QuickBird satellites providing more textural information about a forest canopy, with spatial resolutions of 4 meters and 2.44 meters for multispectral data respectively, the opportunity to assess forest volume from a distance at a much finer scale has increased. Additionally Lidar (light detection and ranging) is a relatively new remote sensing technology that can accurately estimate the 3-dimensional structure of forest vegetation which is related to forest volume and offers an alternative to ground based measurement of remotely sensed multispectral data
