Robust Satellite Techniques for Natural and Man Made Hazards Book Review:

Robust Satellite Techniques for Natural and Man-made Hazards provides an introduction the Robust Satellite Techniques (RST) change detection method. This method is used to identify significant signal changes in a reliable way even in the presence of varying disturbing conditions, as they apply to natural, environmental, and industrial hazards. Providing both general and specific examples for the use of RST, Robust Satellite Techniques for Natural and Man-made Hazards offers a variety of applications for these techniques, spanning from natural hazard detection and environmental monitoring to industrial accident and terrorist attach early identification. Applicable to researchers, students, and policy makers alike in a variety of fields including Earth Sciences, Environmental Monitoring, and disaster risk reduction, this book is essential for understanding advanced applications and analyses of remote sensing data. Introduces a unique method to reliably detect hazards Addresses natural, environmental, and industrial hazards all in one compact resource Presents concepts in plain language to aid in multidisciplinary research and includes an appendix for non-experts in remote sensing Includes case studies and testing datasets with RST algorithms to reinforce concepts

Environmental Applications of Remote Sensing Book Review:

Nowadays, the innovation in space technologies creates a new trend for the Earth observation and monitoring from space. This book contains high quality and compressive work on both microwave and optical remote sensing applications. This book is divided into five sections: (i) remote sensing for biomass estimation, (ii) remote sensing-based glacier studies, (iii) remote sensing for coastal and ocean applications, (iv) sewage leaks and environment disasters, and (v) remote sensing image processing. Each chapter offers an opportunity to expand the knowledge about various remote sensing techniques and persuade researchers to deliver new research novelty for environment studies.

A Safer Future Book Review:

Initial priorities for U.S. participation in the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction, declared by the United Nations, are contained in this volume. It focuses on seven issues: hazard and risk assessment; awareness and education; mitigation; preparedness for emergency response; recovery and reconstruction; prediction and warning; learning from disasters; and U.S. participation internationally. The committee presents its philosophy of calls for broad public and private participation to reduce the toll of disasters.

Measuring Vulnerability to Natural Hazards Book Review:

Measuring Vulnerability to Natural Hazards presents a broad range of current approaches to measuring vulnerability. It provides a comprehensive overview of different concepts at the global, regional, national, and local levels, and explores various schools of thought. More than 40 distinguished academics and practitioners analyse quantitative and qualitative approaches, and examine their strengths and limitations. This book contains concrete experiences and examples from Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe to illustrate the theoretical analyses.The authors provide answers to some of the key questions on how to measure vulnerability and they draw attention to issues with insufficient coverage, such as the environmental and institutional dimensions of vulnerability and methods to combine different methodologies.This book is a unique compilation of state-of-the-art vulnerability assessment and is essential reading for academics, students, policy makers, practitioners, and anybody else interested in understanding the fundamentals of measuring vulnerability. It is a critical review that provides important conclusions which can serve as an orientation for future research towards more disaster resilient communities.
