Abstract: An introduction to the concepts of remote sensing technology is presented. Remote sensor image interpretation is stressed as a practical tool for many civil engineering applications. The utility of remote sensing for use in the general areas of environmental and sanitary engineering, water resources, transportation engineering, geological engineering, and coastal engineering is described. References to publications dealing with specific remote sensing studies are keyed to general areas of application. The specific case of utilizing remote sensing for water quality studies is presented in detail.
