The innovation in space technologies has generated a new method for observing and monitoring tsunamis from space. Most tsunami remote sensing studies focus on using classical image processing tools or conventional edge detection procedures. However, these methods do not use modern physics, applied mathematics, signal communication, remote sensing data and innovative space technologies. This book equips readers to understand how to monitor tsunamis from space with remote sensing technology art to create a better alarm warning system.

Maged Marghany has a Ph.D. in Environmental Remote Sensing from the University Putra Malaysia where he now works as a researcher. He has conducted extensive research on the application of SAR data to coastal studies. He has been leading several projects related to the application of SAR to Malaysian coastal waters funded by Ministry of Science and Technology, Malaysia (MOSTE). His research is directed towards the use of SAR data for modeling shoreline changes and developing a new approach for forecasting oil slick trajectory movements. He has taught extensively and published over 200 papers on the topic.
