  Remote Sensing of Geomorphology, Vol discusses the new range of remote-sensing techniques (lidar, structure from motion photogrammetry, advanced satellite platforms) that has led to a dramatic increase in terrain information, and as such provided new opportunities for a better understanding of surface morphology and related Earth surface Book Edition: 1.   For about 40 years, with a proliferation over the last two decades, remote sensing data, primarily in the form of satellite and airborne imagery and altimetry, have been used to study floods, floodplain inundation, and river hydrodynamics. The sensors and data processing techniques that exist to derive information about floods are by: 3.   The authors explain the scientific and societal impacts of remote sensing, review digital image processing and GIS, provide case histories from areas around the globe, and describe practical applications of remote sensing to the environment, renewable and nonrenewable resources, land use/land cover, natural hazards, and climate change.

One of the most important tools available to the regional planner is the remote sensing of the environment. Not only is it very useful in the planning process in general, but it is also valuable in detecting and mapping many types of natural hazards when, as is often the case, detailed descriptions of their effects do not exist.

The majority of the disasters are tackled as sudden emergency situations due to the total lack in emergency plans and risk maps in the areas, the underestimation of the hazard as well as the unusual and extreme conditions of the natural phenomena. The use of remote sensing when dealing with such natural disasters is a common practice nowadays Cited by: Natural Hazards Monitoring with Remote Sensing FreeBook.

Proximal Sensing is a similar idea but often refer to laboratory and field measurements, instead of images showing a large spatial extent. Geophysical methods, for instance Sonar and acoustic methods, shares.

Remote sensing refers to the technology of acquiring information about the earth's surface (land and ocean) and atmosphere using sensors onboard airborne (aircraft, balloons) or space borne (satellites, space shuttles) platforms. The technology of remote sensing has gradually evolved into a scientific subject.
