    Remote Sensing (ISSN ) is a peer-reviewed open access journal about the science and application of remote sensing technology, and is published semi-monthly online by MDPI. The Remote Sensing Society of Japan (RSSJ) and the Japan Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (JSPRS) are affiliated with Remote Sensing, and their members receive a discount on the article . The Journal of Applied Remote Sensing is an electronic journal that optimizes the communication of concepts, information, and progress within the remote sensing community to improve the societal benefit for monitoring and management of natural disasters, weather forecasting, agricultural and urban land-use planning, environmental quality monitoring, ecological restoration, and numerous other.

    Advanced Remote Sensing is an application-based reference that provides a single source of mathematical concepts necessary for remote sensing data gathering and assimilation. It presents state-of-the-art techniques for estimating land surface variables from a variety of data types, including optical sensors such as RADAR and LIDAR. In remote sensing, the electromagnetic radiation acts as the information carrier, with a distance of tens to thousands of kilometers distance between the sensor and the target. 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 similar.

    This Special Issue aims to gather original articles and reviews showing practical applications of remote sensing in different areas of human, animal, or environmental health. In particular, it aims to show innovative uses of satellite images at different scales, whether locally with very high-resolution images, over larger areas at medium or.   However, in Africa, where in situ monitoring of important water bodies is financially, institutionally and spatially constrained, there is strong demand for remote sensing to fill the critical information gap. Here we review a wide range of applications of both passive and active remote sensing to African by: 4.

APPLICATIONS OF REMOTE SENSING Remote sensing methods can be applied to plate tectonic problems. Molnar and Tapponnier () used Landsat imagery along with earth- quake data for analysing the relative motions of Eurasia and the Indian : A.

Boud. All available data sources: geologic and geophysical maps and remote sensing images should be used. Remote sensing methods are very efficient for the "synoptic overlook" necessary to pinpoint areas for more detailed investigation. The use of satellite imagery is a way of applying and testing structural frameworks for mineral potential as surface reflections of deep tectonic features Author: A.

Boud. In West Africa, methods are being developed to use remote sensing data (SPOT-5, with spatial resolution of 10 m) combined with hydrological models to map areas with vernal ponds that are favorable to mosquitoes carrying the disease in Sahelian areas [ VIG 09].

REMOTE SENSING SYSTEM TYPES. A. Visual Remote Sensing System The human visual system is an example of a remote sensing system in the general sense. The sensors in this example are the two types of photosensitive cells, known as the cones and the rods, at the retina of the eyes. The cones are responsible for color vision.
