An Introduction to Ocean Remote Sensing by Seelye Martin

By Seelye Martin

absolutely up-to-date, with major new assurance of advances in satellite tv for pc oceanography and effects from new satellite tv for pc missions, the second one variation of this well known textbook introduces scholars to how distant sensing works, tips to comprehend observations from Earth-observing structures, and the observations' value to actual and organic oceanography. It presents complete motives of radiative move, ocean floor houses, satellite tv for pc orbits, tools and techniques, noticeable distant sensing of biogeochemical homes, infrared and microwave retrieval of sea floor temperature, sea floor salinity retrieval, passive microwave measurements, scatterometer wind retrieval, altimetry and SAR. additionally incorporated are descriptions of the web records the place facts will be received, and readers can receive on-line instruments for operating with the knowledge - permitting hands-on engagement with real-world observations. this can be a fantastic textbook for graduate and complex undergraduate scholars in oceanography, distant sensing and environmental technological know-how, and a realistic source for researchers and pros operating with oceanographic satellite tv for pc data.
