Abstract

The chapter deals with the fundamentals of remote sensing, basic principle of electromagnetic radiation and its interaction with the earth, atmosphere and surface materials. The types of sensors, digital data formats, basic image processing techniques, including image enhancement techniques and classification methods are explained in details. Besides the image processing techniques, applications of remote sensing in Kuwait are presented in a section on applications, that include techniques for mapping subsidence in oil fields, estimation of recharge to shallow aquifers and freshwater lenses, calibration of satellite precipitation data and mapping of hydrocarbon contamination using land surface temperature estimates.
