Item description for Inverse Methods for Atmospheric Sounding : Theory and Practice (Series on Atmospheric Oceanic and Planetary Physics) by Clive D. Rodgers...
Remote sounding of the atmosphere has proved to be a fruitful method of obtaining global information about the atmospheres of the earth and other planets. This book treats comprehensively the inverse problem of remote sounding, and discusses a wide range of retrieval methods for extracting atmospheric parameters of interest from the quantities (thermal emission, for example) that can be measured remotely. Inverse theory is treated in depth from an estimation-theory point of view, but practical questions are also emphasized, such as designing observing systems to obtain the maximum quantity of information, efficient numerical implementation of algorithms for processing large quantities of data, error analysis and approaches to the validation of the resulting retrievals. The book is targeted at graduate students as well as scientists.

A very good reference May 17, 2007
This is a very well written (and highly sited) book for satellite retrieval analysis. I found it to be an incredibly useful reference for my research in data assimilation. I highly suggest it for anyone wanting to understand the theory behind satellite retrievals.
Nice online shopping service Jan 30, 2007
Everything worked fine. The international shipping was much quicker than what I expected.
