Abstract

Hyperspectral remote sensing is the definitive optical tool for increasing knowledge and understanding of the Earth's surface. Contiguous high-resolution spectrometry provides a new dimension in mapping capability because of the potential for quantitative measurement of surface biogeochemistry. previous termAlexander Goetznext term provided the vision and leadership that has produced nearly all critical developments in this field. He was among the first to recognize that spectrometry would change optical remote sensing from qualitative observations to quantitative physical measurements. His significant accomplishments over the last 25 years include development of critical image processing and atmospheric correction software, spectrometers that made it possible to move research out of the lab and into the field environment, and the development of NASA's airborne imaging spectrometer program. This special issue is dedicated to Dr. previous termGoetznext term and his accomplishments.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
