An Introduction to Ocean Remote Sensing by Seelye Martin

By Seelye Martin

totally up-to-date, with major new insurance of advances in satellite tv for pc oceanography and effects from new satellite tv for pc missions, the second one variation of this renowned textbook introduces scholars to how distant sensing works, find out how to comprehend observations from Earth-observing platforms, and the observations' value to actual and organic oceanography. It offers complete causes of radiative move, ocean floor homes, satellite tv for pc orbits, tools and techniques, noticeable distant sensing of biogeochemical houses, infrared and microwave retrieval of sea floor temperature, sea floor salinity retrieval, passive microwave measurements, scatterometer wind retrieval, altimetry and SAR. additionally integrated are descriptions of the web files the place facts might be received, and readers can receive on-line instruments for operating with the knowledge - allowing hands-on engagement with real-world observations. this is often an incredible textbook for graduate and complex undergraduate scholars in oceanography, distant sensing and environmental technology, and a realistic source for researchers and execs operating with oceanographic satellite tv for pc data.
