Abstract

More satellites monitoring some aspect of the Earth are launched each day. This article gives an overview of the science and practice of remote sensing (RS). It goes into the technical details of the physics behind RS, lists some typical contemporary and future Earth observing (EO) satellites, and explains the factors that determine the quality of images from space. This relatively short article cannot cover the entire field of RS, but the references and further reading list can be used for further study.
