Item description for Measuring the Oceans from Space: The principles and methods of satellite oceanography (Springer Praxis Books / Geophysical Sciences) by I. S. Robinson...
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 Nio) and the modelling, forecasting and prediction of the ocean.
