9780124200180: Interpreting Aerial Photographs to Identify Natural Hazards

Authored by a world-renowned aerial photography and remote sensing expert, Geographic Aerial Photography: Identifying Earth-Surface Hazards Through Image Interpretation is the most practical and authoritative reference available for any professional or student looking for a reference on how to recognize, analyze, interpret and avoid – or successfully plan for – dangerous contingencies.

Whether they are related to natural terrain, geology, vegetation, hydrology or land use patterns – it’s critical for you to be able to recognize dangerous conditions when and where they exist. Failure to adequately recognize and characterize geomorphic, geologic, and hydrologic dangers on the ground using aerial photography is one of the major factors contributing to due to natural hazards and disasters, damage to architectural structures, and often the subsequent loss of human life as a result. Aerial photographs provide one of the most prevalent, inexpensive and under-utilized tools to those with the knowledge and expertise to interpret them.

  • Authored by one of the world’s experts in aerial photography and remote sensing, with more than 35 years of experience in research and instruction
  • Features more than 100 color photographs to vividly explore the fundamental principles of aerial photography
  • Chapter tables underscore key concepts including channel size and shape characteristics, image scales, reverse fault values, and strike-slip fault systems

Review:

"...the most practical and authoritative reference available for any professional or student looking for a reference on how to recognise, analyse, interpret and avoid – or successfully plan for – dangerous contingencies...Aerial photographs provide one of the most prevalent, inexpensive and under-utilised tools to those with the knowledge and expertise to interpret them." --GeoQ, March 2014

"This guide describes the interpretation of aerial photos to identify natural hazards on the ground. It explains how to use the sun to illuminate targets, read an aerial photo, make accurate measurements on these photos and understand three-dimensional viewing, read textural information like stream patterns and gully analysis, and read color information. It goes on to detail how to recognize dangers from earthquakes and faults, landslides, floods, and ground subsidence;..." --ProtoView.com, February 2014
