Remote Sensing and GIS Techniques for Tectonic Studies
- Remote sensing
Refers to small- or large-scale acquisition of information of an object or phenomenon (e.g., earth surface features), by the use of either recording or real-time sensing device(s) such as by way of aircraft, spacecraft, satellite, buoy, or ship that are not in physical contact with the object.
- Geographic information system
Refers to spatial data management and analysis tools that can assist users in organizing, storing, editing, analyzing, and displaying positional and attribute information about geographical data.
Any linear features that can be picked out as lines (appearing as such or evident because of contrasts in terrain or ground cover, tone, pattern, size, etc.) in aerial or space imagery.
A field of study within geology concerned generally with the structures within the lithosphere of the Earth (or other planets) and particularly with the forces and movements that have operated in a...
