Geosciences

Geosciences are earth sciences entailing “any science, such as geology, geophysics, geochemistry, or geodesy, concerned with the earth” (Collins, 2019). "Multispectral data can provide information on lithology or rock composition based on spectral reflectance. Radar provides an expression of surface topography and roughness, and thus is extremely valuable, especially when integrated with another data source to provide detailed relief." (Natural Resources Canada/Canada Centre for Remote Sensing, 2015)
