Item description for Remote Sensing for Geologists: A Guide to Image Interpretation by Gary L. Prost...

The interpretation of remote sensing images requires knowledge of the instruments used to acquire the images as well as the computer processing techniques used to generate them. Remote Sensing for Geologists: A Guide to Image Interpretation covers technology and processing techniques as they directly relate to interpreting imagery. This book is a manual of image interpretation that demonstrates what to look for on imagery when engaged in mineral or hydrocarbon exploration, mine and oil field development, engineering projects, and environmental monitoring. Four sections comprise this volume: project initiation; exploration techniques; exploitation and engineering remote sensing; and environmental concerns. They combine to provide you with a solid foundation of what image interpretation is, and enables you to recognize features of interest and effectively use imagery in projects for the petroleum, mining, or groundwater industries. About the Author Gary Prost obtained a BSc in Geology from Northern Arizona University and an MSc and PhD in Geology from the Colorado School of Mines. Over the past 25 years Prost has worked for the US Geological Survey, the Superior Oil Company (oil and minerals), and Amoco Production Company, serving four and a half years as the supervisor of the remote sensing group. His remote sensing experience includes both mineral and oil exploration in the United States and in more than thirty other countries. He is presently exploring for oil in frontier areas of Canada.
