This is a truly interdisciplinary subject that encompasses a range of applications in various fields which are discussed in detail throughout the text.

The core focus of the book describes new methods and applications of satellite technology in the fields of land and emergency monitoring. It draws on new research outcomes from the European FP7 project GIONET (European Centre of Excellence in Earth Observation Research Training, GIONET combines industrial partners with universities and research institutes and this book will provide a perspective on Earth Observation applications that is motivated by the cross-fertilisation of both sectors. This will encourage interestfrom both industry and academia.

Developed from the research undertaken within the European Earth Observation Programme GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) has established land and emergency monitoring core services and these methods and techniques will be discussed throughout the text.
