Visible and Circumvisible Regions and Image Interpretation

Chapter

Abstract

Despite the availability of other forms of remote sensing, measurements from the visible spectrum, directly connected to vision provided the original basis of remote sensing and the foundation for the interpretation of surface features. The human eye (Figure 3.1) is sensitive to only a very small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, in wavelength terms 0.35 to 0.65 microns, not accidentally the peak of solar irradiance at the Earth’s surface (Gray and Coutts 1973). By contrast, human skin is sensitive to thermal (temperature) variations, and the human ear to sound over a relatively larger 10-octave range (Gray and Coutts 1973).
