Item description for Polar Remote Sensing: Volume I: Atmosphere and Oceans (Springer Praxis Books / Geophysical Sciences) by Dan Lubin & Robert Massom...
This work will be a comprehensive multidisciplinary discussion of the applications of satellite remote sensing - advanced ground-based remote sensing, as both are related to polar science and operations. Discussion is provided on the various passive and active remote sensor types in sufficient detail to be self-contained, with numerous references for further reading. Subsequent chapters will be devoted to specific geophysical applications, including principles of retrieval algorithms, with brief reviews of major remote sensing advances and publications in each discipline. Also included will be a review of the current state of the science in each discipline. The final chapters will address current satellite data availability, and the use of satellite data in support of expeditions and field operations.
