      Remote sensing is the science of observing and analyzing an area, object, or phenomenon based on data collected by sensors physically separated from the target. Proceedings of the IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS’) and the 24 th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing, Toronto, Canada, June , , V: Inferring urban land use from 1 meter resolution IKONOS imagery.

      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, . Experts report the state of the art in the study of global climate change using remote sensing techniques. Topics covered include the principles of remote sensing, the management of data, data requirements in climatology, the principles of modelling, the input of data into models, and the application of remote sensing to the atmosphere, ice and snow, seas and land.

The Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing (CJRS) The Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing is the official journal of the Canadian Remote Sensing Society, a publication of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) and published by Taylor and Francis.

The CJRS provides a forum for the publication of scientific research and review articles. Comprehensive Remote Sensing covers all aspects of the topic, with each volume edited by well-known scientists and contributed to by frontier researchers.

It is a comprehensive resource that will benefit both students and researchers who want to further their understanding in. Remote Sensing plays a key role in monitoring the various manifestations of global climate change.

It is used routinely in the assessment and mapping of biodiversity over large areas, in the monitoring of changes to the physical environment, in assessing threats to various components of natural systems, and in the identification of priority areas for conservation/5(6).

Satellite remote sensing is giving researchers the capacity to monitor biodiversity on a national scale, including remote regions that are otherwise inaccessible. The Earth Observation for Sustainable Development of Forests (EOSD) project is a joint initiative of the Canadian Forest Service and the Canadian Space Agency.

The main contribution should be the remote sensing component, rather than investigation of an environmental problem in which remote sensing data or techniques do not play a major role. Papers dealing with single study sites are welcome, although the sites should be representative of broad conditions suitable for drawing conclusions of interest.

Remote sensing is the science and art of identifying, observing, and measuring an object without coming into direct contact with it. This involves the detection and measurement of radiation of different wavelengths reflected or emitted from distant objects or materials, by which they may be identified and by: 2.
