Reflectance of terrestrial materials
Paulo Roberto Meneses , Tati de Almeida , Gustavo Macedo de Mello Baptista
A fundamental text for the interpretation of images from remote orbital and aerial sensors!
Reflectance of terrestrial materials introduces throughout 10 chapters the concepts relating to the mechanisms of light and matter interaction, serving as a handbook for the interpretation of the reflectance of natural materials. It goes form the basic concepts of chemical, physical and biological materials’ analyses through absorption bands to deeper specific knowledges on the reflectance of minerals, rocks, soils, vegetations and water; the interpretation of satellite images; the interpretation of multidata images; and remote sensing by radar.
With a broad spectrum, it is destined to grad and post-grad students in the areas of Geology, Agronomy, Forest Engineering, Ecology, Geography, Biology, Environmental Science and Cartography Engineering, besides professionals who use remote sensing technologies.
