Since its genesis, satellite remote sensing has enabled observations of environmental changes at inaccessible locations, improving tremendously many scientific fields like the meteorology, oceanography, agriculture production, glaciology, geology etc. Using the information collected by satellites, changes in the physical environment can be measured and the information is analyzed to predict future patterns and achieve better environmental outcomes in different areas. Due to its speed and efficiency in information-gathering, the applications of satellite remote sensing are continually increasing and becoming a vital part in environmental resource management process.
