I am writing to you with great pleasure that the Remote Sensing Handbook (Three Volume Set) is now published!. In every way, you will find this handbook unique, creative, and a path breaking effort of 300+ leading remote sensing scientists of the world. Such excellent work was only possible due to terrific effort from authors, editors, publishers, printers, and many, many others. It is a huge effort and it is hard to believe it is finally here and well worth the effort.
Ultimately we have a comprehensive coverage of all remote sensing topics, written by the best in the field. The handbook comprises 82 Chapters, about 2200 pages, from 300+ authors, every page printed in color and bound in hard copy. I can easily say that the three volumes constitute what every remote sensing student; professor, scientist, and professional practitioners and experts would need as a constant reference.
