About this book


This book advances the scientific understanding and application of space-based technologies to address a variety of areas related to sustainable development; including environmental systems analysis, environmental management, clean processes, green chemistry, and green engineering. Geo-spatial techniques have gained considerable interest in recent decades among the earth and environmental science communities for solving and understanding various complex problems and approaches towards sustainable technologies. The book encompasses several scopes of interests on sustainable technologies in areas such as water resources, forestry, remote sensing, meteorology, atmospheric and oceanic modeling, environmental engineering and management, civil engineering, air and environmental pollution, water quality problems, etc. The book will appeal to people with an interest in geo-spatial techniques, sustainable development and other diverse backgrounds within earth and environmental sciences field.


Applied earth sciences in space technology Geo-spatial techniques for sustainable development Space science in the 21st century Geotechnical engineering related to agriculture and forestry geo-spatial techniques Space technology in India Applied geoinformatics Monitoring earth from space Geospatial modeling Spatial ecology Remote sensing of environment Geomatics for sustainable development
