Seeing Earth from Space

by Patricia Lauber

Published by Orchard, 1990
80 pages
ISBN: 0-531-05902-2

Dramatic photographs taken by astronauts and satellite remote sensing radar and infrared Landsat images provide a striking visual perspective of the earth as one planet. Each photograph is accompanied by a concise and thoughtful explanation of the image depicted. A portion of the book demonstrates how different types of remote sensing are used by geographers, oceanographers, botanists, geologists, meteorologists and others. The potential consequences of the greenhouse effect and ozone depletion are also discussed. CCBC categories: The Natural World; Issues In Today's World.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
