Abstract

Remotesensingisanewemergingfieldoftechnologicaldevelopmentandhasmadea
verysignificantimpactonthegeologicalsurveysandstudies.Theworkdonesofarin
geologicalremotesensinghasindicatedthescope,utilityandlimitationsofthese
moderntechniquesindifferentgeologicalproblems.Theutilityofairbornesurveysand
aerialphotographyhasnowbeenwellestablishedwhereassatelliteremotesensingat
presenthastwomainconstraintsresolutionandlackofstereoscopy.Withthe
developmentsinsensortechnologytoprovidesensorswithimprovedresolution,more
spectralbandsandstereoscopy,substantialnewresultsareanticipatedinthegeological
remotesensingfromspace.Briefoverviewofapplicationsofremotesensingtechniquesto
geologyisdiscussedinthispaper.
