A book on satellite archaeology  

The Springer book 'Satellite remote sensing: a new tool for archaeology', edited by Rosa Lasaponara and Nicola Masini, respectively researchers at Cnr-Institute of Methodologies for Environmental Analysis (Imaa) and Cnr-Institute for Archaeological and Monumental Heritage (Ibam), provides a collection of outstanding articles focused on advanced satellite data processing, analysis and interpretation for archaeological applications features. The work will be presented in Rome at Cnr (P. le Aldo Moro 7) on May 8, 2012 and it is devoted to scientists in remote sensing applied to archeology, geoarcheology, paleo-environment, paleo-climate and cultural heritage.

The authors, renowned experts from the international scientific community, give examples of the high potentiality of the integration of Earth observation (Eo) multitemporal, multiscale, multisensors techniques, including cases of the integration of Eo techniques with other traditional archaeological data source, such as aerial photos, field survey, trials, excavations and historical documentation.

The recent increasing development of Eo techniques and the tremendous advances in information and communication technologies have resulted primarily in cultural heritage applications. The book focuses on new challenging prospects for the use of Eo in archaeology, not only for probing the subsurface to unveil sites and artifacts, but also for the management and valorization as well as for the monitoring and preservation of cultural resources.
