Introduction to Remote Sensing

pho·to·ge·ol·o·gy
noun
    
The field of study concerned with the geological interpretation of aerial photographs.

Remote sensing photogeology accelerates the exploration cycle, drives down costs, and provides a significant and unique edge over your competitors.

Foundations of Remote Sensing

     Electromagnetic waves are radiated through space. When the energy encounters an object, even a very tiny one like a molecule of air, one of three reactions occurs. The radiation will either be reflected off the object, absorbed by the object, of transmitted through the object.
     In remote sensing, we are largely concerned with REFLECTED RADIATION. This is the radiation that causes our eyes to see colors, causes infrared film to record vegetation, and allows radar images of the earth to be created.
