Since the first edition was published in 1987, Image Interpretation in Geology has established itself as essential reading for earth science, environmental science and physical geography students studying the geological applications of remote sensing and image interpretation.
The book describes the fundamentals of remote data capture and image processing, their practical limitations, and new technqiues such as digital radar imaging and hyperspectral data analysis. Geological applications such as mapping, mineral exploration, and geohazards are illustrated by numerous black-and-white photographs and a colour plate section. A list of URLs encourages exploration of some of the excellent remote image resources on the internet.
New to the 3rd edition is a CD-ROM (Mac and PC format) which contains an image gallery (with accompanying spectacles for viewing in 3-D), exercises, and TNTLite. This software, a fully-functional version of MircoImages Inc's TNTMips, encourages students to experience at first-hand the immense power of modern image processing and interpretation software, and will allow lecturers to devise a wide range of practical exercises to support their courses.
