What is Remote Sensing?

What is remote sensing? Remote sensing, simply put, is the art and science of acquiring information about our Earth using remote instruments. These instruments do not require direct contact with the environment it is engaging with. We experience our lives through our five senses. Some of these senses (taste and touch), require direct contact with our


Through remote sensing there is now prominent potential towards accurate estimation of surface soil moisture. There are conventional methods of measuring soil moisture directly at selected locations but may not be applicable where estimations are required at a global scale. Studies conducted utilized ERS-2 SAR images for estimating soil mixture by meticulously incorporating the effect
