About this Item

Neuware - This book will cover the fundamental principles of measuring oceans from space, but will contain state-of-the-art developments in data analysis and interpretation and in sensors. Completely new will be material covering advances in oceanography that have grown out of remote sensing, including some of the global applications of the data. The variety of applications of remotely sensed data to ocean science has grown significantly and new areas of science are emerging to exploit the gobal datasets being recovered by satellites, particularly in relation to climate and climate change, basin-scale, air-sea interaction processes (e.g. El Niño) and the modelling, forecasting and prediction of the ocean. TOC:Fundamentals of Ocean Remote Sensing - Why study the ocean from space - Sensors for remote sensing.- Ocean Colour - Variable wavelength remote sensing.- Sea Surface Temperature - Infrared measurement of SST - Microwave radiometry.- Ocean Surface Topography - Radar altimeters.- Sea Surface Roughness - Active microwave remote sensing of sea surface roughness.- Remote Sensing in the Wider Oceanographic Context - Enhancing the role of remote sensing in ocean science.- The way forward - An Evaluation of the achievements of satellite oceanography. 669 pp. Englisch.
