It explains the science behind remote sensing; describing what it is, how it works, and how it can be used in real life applications: urban environments, natural landscape, terrestrial water cycle, and coastal environments.

Using hands-on practical exercises the book shows readers how to find, download, process and visualize freely available satellite remote sensing data, using just a standard personal computer and an internet connection

The book is accompanied by an online resource ( to support those working their way through it.
