RANGO USDA Hydrology Laboratory, Agricultural Research Service, Beltsville, MarylandUSA Abstract A brief review of research in remote sensing of water resources indicates that there are many positive results, and some techniques have been applied Size: 1MB.

The book is meant to be a reference and text; it is not a collection of papers from some meeting. The book is intended to provide methods to help the readers solve their own problems in hydrology and water management.

Therefore, scientific issues are presented only as far as they are necessary for the application of remote sensing. Introduction to Satellite Remote Sensing: Atmosphere, Ocean and Land Applications is the first reference book to cover ocean applications, atmospheric applications, and land applications of remote sensing.

Applications of remote sensing data are finding increasing application in fields as diverse as wildlife ecology and coastal recreation. Remote sensing provides a means of observing hydrological state variables over large areas.

The ones which we will consider in this paper are land surface temperature from thermal infrared data, surface soil moisture from passive microwave data, snow cover using both visible and microwave data, water quality using visible and near-infrared data and estimating landscape surface roughness using Cited by: The book provides comprehensive information on possible applications of remote sensing data for hydrological monitoring and modelling as well as for water management decisions.

In both cases, near real-time (i.e., within hours behind real-time) observations from both in situ and remote sensing (including both satellite/aircraft and land-based) platforms are assimilated into numerical models to produce nowcast every six hours.

Remote sensing applications have greatly enhanced our ability to monitor and manage our natural resources, especially in the areas of agriculture, ecosystems, and water resources.

However, in spite of significant progress in recent years, there are still many areas where the potential of remote sensing has not been fully realized, and these are. The research activity is focused on the development of innovative methods for exploiting satellite observations in hydrological applications.

We use (and develop) remote sensing products for monitoring hydrological and hydraulic variables (rainfall, soil moisture, water depth, flow velocity and river discharge) and evaluate their potential in the modelling of the hydrological and hydraulic.

Even when remote sensing data are input at km resolution, the algorithm is capable of reconstructing a reasonably accurate soil moisture pattern at km resolution.

Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to on-site observation, especially the Earth. Remote sensing is used in numerous fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth science disciplines (for example, hydrology, ecology, meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, geology); it.

24 Principles of Remote Sensing Remote sensing techniques allow taking images of the earth surface in various wavelength region of the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS). One of the major characteristics of a remotely sensed image is the wavelength region it represents in the EMS.

Some of the images represent reflected solar radiation. This book presents the theory and methods of GNSS remote sensing as well as its applications in the atmosphere, oceans, land and hydrology. Ground-based atmospheric sensing, space-borne atmospheric sensing, reflectometry, ocean remote sensing, hydrology sensing as well as cryosphere sensing with the GNSS will be discussed per chapter in the book.

Introduction. As elaborated elsewhere in this book, precipitation is a critical weather element for determining the habitability of different parts of the Earth, yet is difficult to measure adequately with surface-based instruments due to its small-scale variability in space and Cited by: Book: Satellite remote sensing for hydrology and water management.

Remote sensing is the examination of an area from a significant distance. It is used to gather information and imaging remotely. This practice can be done using devices such as cameras placed on the ground, ships, aircraft, satellites, or even spacecraft.

Today, data obtained through remote sensing is usually stored and manipulated with Author: Amanda Briney.This reference book contains, the principles, rules and directions needed for the mastery of the art, science and skill known as ''remote sensing.'' The 36 chapters cover the full spectrum of remote sensing science: theory; instruments; techniques; and applications.Hydrology (from Greek: ὕδωρ, "hýdōr" meaning "water" and λόγος, "lógos" meaning "study") is the scientific study of the movement, distribution and management of water on Earth and other planets, including the water cycle, water resources and environmental watershed sustainability.

A practitioner of hydrology is called a hydrologist. Hydrologists are scientists studying earth or.
