1 June 1970 A Survey Of Multispectral Remote Sensing Techniques For Earth Resources Applications
Author Affiliations +
Remote sensing for earth resources applications has as its ob-jective the collection and interpretation of information on all envi-ronmentally significant features of the atmosphere, oceans, and land surfaces. This information is most effectively gathered by air-borne and satellite borne imaging systems. These systems operate at a variety of wavelengths extending from the visual spectrum, through the infrared and into the centimeter wavelengths of the microwave band. A comparison is made of the signal characteristics at these spectrum regions. In particular, the ability of microwave radiome-tric imaging to augment visual and infrared imaging is discussed. Recent developments in electronically scanned microwave radio-metric sensors are described, together with methods of optimizing microwave data display. Results achieved with integrated display systems for both microwave and optical data are presented, together with projec-tions for future applications.
