Geological remote sensing can be used for structural and stratigraphic mapping in complex geological environments, such as vegetated terrains, and areas covered by thin layers of recent deposits. In vegetated areas, changes in river patterns and subtle changes in vegetation type and density, are the main aspects that aid the understanding of the geological setting. In areas of limited outcrop that have a thin cover of recent sediments, indirect surface expressions of structures can be accurately mapped with remote sensing data.
