Concluding Talk:

Monitoring the Earth

Prof. Farouk El Baz
Director, Boston University
Center for Remote Sensing

Satellite images have opened a wide window on the earth. Images from space cover large areas and allow the study of regional patterns. They show variations in the rock composition and fabric. Examples are given on monitoring environmental changes as well as the search for natural resources, particularly groundwater in desert areas.
