"… a well organized and highly readable overview of many of the most powerful and significant applications of "practical" remote sensing. … The book is sure to clarify concepts both old and new while stimulating interest in the new. … The great difficulty in a book of this type is to stay relevant in a world of ever changing technology. The author has done an excellent job in doing this, in a clear and readable manner. I feel that this book will become the standard reference for practitioners and students alike."
―Dr Ralph N.Baker, Independent Consulting Geologist, Houston, Texas
"… provides an earth scientist with a very efficient, one-stop information shop that covers not only the standard reflected light, thermal, and radar systems, but also the very important geophysical sensors such as potential field, EM, GPR, side-scan sonar, etc. … an important contribution for earth scientists trying to understand how remote sensing imagery and vegetation can be used to create better maps of the earth’s geology."
―James Ellis, Ellis GeoSpatial
"Dr. Prost has clearly and thoroughly explained the wide variety of methods and applications … Geoscientists will find this comprehensive guide to the interpretation and integration of remote sensing data to be a welcome addition to their personal libraries."
―Dr. Dietmar (Deet) Schumacher, Vice President for Geosciences and technology, E&P Field Services
"A new book by Prost is an amazing guide to the field of remote sensing, and it will remain so for years. Difficult to imagine, but the author was able to collect so huge amount of information that his writing can be judged as an ultimate reference volume irrespectively of which particular technique the reader is interested in. Well, it was almost impossible to achieve such brilliance, but this has been done successfully.
Speaking generally, the reviewer cannot imagine a book on remote sensing better than that written by Prost."
―Dmitry A. Ruban, Rostov am Don, Paläontologie Allgemein

I have the e-version of this book and I must say that it is one of the most comprehensive books on remote sensing that I've come across to date. I was impressed by how much geoscience it covers. Most other remote sensing books that I've read focus on the theory and physics behind remote sensing with a few sprinkles of geoscience applications. These books are great for undergraduate students who need to learn the theory or graduate students specializing in remote sensing. But to me "Remote Sensing for Geoscientists" has just the right mix of theory and geoscience applications. The author goes through some of the basic geoscience concepts (e.g., rock types, structural geology, geomorphology, economic geology and even geologic hazards) and a broad array of techniques that ranges from "old school" methods (e.g., estimating strike and dip using aerial photographs) all the way to the latest and greatest in remote sensing technology (e.g., ground-penetrating radar, lidar, etc.). I did not find the text weighed down with excessive technical jargon. It is clearly written and supplemented by crisp figures (in color and black and white). Considering it is just shy of 700 pages, this book is a steal.
