Flood Monitoring the Remote Sensing Way

Flood Monitoring the Remote Sensing Way

Among various natural or humanly created disasters, floods are the most common and widespread. Growing exponentially during the last decade, they are undoubtedly the most destructive phenomena across the world. Floods are a consequence of the increasing frequency of heavy rain, changes in upstream land-use and a continuously increasing concentration of population and assets in […]

Remote Sensing Applications

Remote sensing applications primarily involves interpretation and analysis of electromagnetic radiations interacting with earth and its atmosphere utilising data collected by earth observation (EO) sensors on-board aerial or satellite platforms. The EO system with its ability for a synoptic view, repetitive observations at different spatial, spectral and radiometric resolutions has been widely accepted as an […]

Investigations of the Recent Polar Ice Variations Observed from the Space-Borne Optical and Microwave Sensors

Introduction Global climate change remains a topic of concern over the last few decades. The Arctic and the Antarctic polar regions are important components of the Earth’s climate system through their influence on the global atmospheric and oceanic circulations. Most of the global climate models predict the increase in Earth’s surface temperature with much larger […]
