"... with so much happening in remote sensing field, Dr B. C. Panda, the doyen of agricultural physics, with his passion for the topic, has taken up the onerous task of writing a textbook on "Remote Sensing: Principles and Applications", bringing all the essence into a single space. The lucid manner in which Dr. Panda has explained the nuances of the advances in the field is to be greatly appreciated and I am sure, this reader-friendly book will not only directly serve the needs of the students as a textbook, but also serve as a reference manual for the professionals working in the field."
—Foreword by Dr V. Jayaraman
Director, Earth Observations System, Indian Space Research Organisation, Bangalore.
This book, designed to serve as a textbook for graduate and post-graduate students, presents a systematic and convincing exposition of the science and technology of Remote Sensing at a cultural level so that it is understood by the young and adult learners alike. It is meticulously planned to offer conceptual clarity and understanding to the readers on the high-tech subjects of Remote Sensing, GIS and GPS. Every chapter of this book is appended by Suggestions for Supplementary Reading in which large number of reference materials - books and research papers, are meticulously chosen and presented for developing continued interest and creative imagination in such candidates who can embark upon innovative work in their respective fields of specialization using the powerful Remote Sensing and GIS techniques.
Students and academicians of Remote Sensing, GIS and GPS.

About the Author:
Dr. B. C. Panda, former Head and Professor, Division of Agricultural Physics, Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi, basically a Physicist, started his professional career in 1963 as a Member of the Faculty of Physics in the National Institute of Technology, Rourkela before joining Indian Agricultural Research Institute in 1970. Here, keeping post-graduate teaching close to his heart, Prof Panda carried out research work in diverse fields such as Agricultural Remote Sensing, Plant Biophysics and Extension Agrometeorology. He initiated and nurtured the ISRO/ DOS -sponsored Winter School in Remote Sensing at Indian Agricultural Research Institute to train Agricultural Scientists of this country in the Applications of Remote Sensing in Agriculture.
