The development of effective methodologies for the analysis of multi-temporal data is one of the most important and challenging issues that the remote sensing community will face in the next few years. The importance and timeliness of this issue are directly related to the ever-increasing quantity of multi-temporal data provided by the numerous remote sensing satellites that orbit our planet. The synergistic use of multi-temporal remote sensing data and advanced analysis methodologies results in the possibility of solving complex problems related to the monitoring of the Earth's surface and atmosphere.
This book brings together the methodological aspects of multi-temporal remote sensing image analysis, real applications and end-user requirements, presenting the state of the art in this field and contributing to the definition of common research priorities. Researchers and graduate students in the fields of environmental monitoring, remote sensing image analysis and pattern recognition will appreciate the interdisciplinary approach thanks to the articles written by experts from different scientific communities.
