Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to on-site observation, especially the Earth.

Remote sensing is used in numerous fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth science disciplines (for example, hydrology, ecology, meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, geology); it.

Remote sensing has revolutionized the scientific study of the Earth by enabling measurements of more detailed and hitherto unexplored phenomena with spatially-extensive and global perspectives. Various disciplines and industries have benefited from the dramatic discoveries enabled by remote sensing.

Dear Colleagues, Recent years have seen increasing urgency from international coordinating bodies such as CEOS, WMO- GSICS, GCOS, climate researchers, and policy makers for establishing a space-based climate observing system capable of unambiguously monitoring indicators of change in the Earth’s climate, as needed for international mitigation strategies such as the Paris Climate Accord.

The beginning of modern remote sensing (with digital images and not with film, as well as with high spatial resolution in contrast to meteorological satellites) was laid in when NASA launched the first satellite of their Landsat mission—then it was called ERTS (Earth Resources Technology Satellite).This is one of the most successful ERS programs—now it is their newest Landsat Potential pitfalls related to space-based lidar remote sensing of the Earth with an emphasis on wind measurement Michael J.
