In this fourth volume of the Manual of Remote Sensing series, Ustin (land, air, and water resources, U. of California, Davis) compiles chapters on using remote sensing in the study of natural resources and environment, focusing on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, agricultural applications, and issues. Thirteen chapters by an international group of researchers investigate the use of technology to gather data about terrestrial forests, rangelands, semideserts, and soils; rivers, lakes, wetlands, and coastal margins ecosystems; irrigated and grazing agriculture, and dryland and wetland farming. The book is intended for those in environmental science, natural resource management, biology, and oceanography. A CD-ROM of figures and resources accompanies the text.
