This is a well written, perhaps slightly overpriced book, providing an overview and starting point for a wide range of applications in geosciences, such as image processing in remote sensing, generation and processing of digital elevation models and the analysis of time series - as stated. Also, as stated, the book introduces methods of data analysis in geosciences using MATLAB. (...)
   The mathematical element flows nicely with the subject matter and I suspect that even an individual without a mathematics background could gain an appreciation for the math based on the context and would not necessarily need to know or learn every underlying aspect of theory that generated the mathematics used.
   This is refreshing to see in an advanced book - here is what you might be up against, here is what you need to get the job done.
