“An exciting and informative book to read and a pleasure to review, this work constitutes a generalist’s dream. . . By that virtue, this book should also appeal to the informed public at large.” (Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing, 1 October 2012)
“I would recommend this book to those unfamiliar with remote-sensing methods and applications and to others who want to see how these techniques can be applied to global environmental change.” (The Leading Edge, 1 May 2012)
"I highly recommend the well explained and invaluable reference book Remote Sensing and Global Environmental Change by Samuel J. Purkis and Victor V. Klemas, to any students, professionals, and policy makers who are seeking a comprehensive and well presented approach to the application of remote sensing technology to global environmental change. This book will enhance and enrich your understanding of remote sensing, and of its accompanying technologies and environmental applications." (Blog Business World, 22 October 2011)
"The book covers in a very comprehensive way many aspects of remote sensing providing a global view of the physical background, models, a variety of sensors and several applications. Culturally, the book provides a clear picture of the remote sensing as a three-leg problem: measurements, models and inversion. The reader is guided into a tour of the most challenging services within GMES and GOESS programs. Authors are able to teach and fascinate at the same time."

“This book is written by two internationally leading scholars who have over 50 years combined experience in remote sensing and Earth sciences. It examines how the modern concepts, technologies and methods in remote sensing can be effectively used to solve problems relevant to a wide range of topics in global environmental change studies. And it has a companion site that contains all the figures and tables included in the book. This book is invaluable for undergraduate and graduate teaching, while providing a good overview of the technology to a manager or scientist.”
