About this book

Proceedings of the A1 Symposium of COSPAR Scientific Commission, Hamburg, Germany, July 1994. The 31 papers provide a state-of-the-art description of monitoring the Earth environment from space. Includes a section on satellites and vegetation.


Part 1 Satellites and atmosphere: solar surface adsorption from different satellite observations, S. Keevallik and U. Rannik; evaluating the CLAVR (clouds from AVHRR) phase I could cover experimental product, L.L. Stowe et al; the variability of cloud cover and cloud forcing inferred from NOAA AVHRR data for the north sea, F.H. Berger; the impact of clouds on the radiative heating of the earth surface-atmosphere system determined from satellite data, R. Stuhlmann; a study of bidirectional reflectance functions for broken cloud fields over ocean, A. Macke et al; high level moisture observations and derived parameters from METEOSAT and other geostationary satellites, L. Picon and M. Desbois; aerosol remote sensing over oceans, Heinemann and J. Fischer. Part 2 Satellites and ocean (including ice/snow): comparison of the sea surface temperature estimation methods, M. Moriyama et al; satellite monitoring of oceanic turbulence around Japan islands, T. Nishimura et al; an earth-gridded SSM/I data set for cryospheric studies and global change monitoring, R.L. Armstrong and M.J. Brodzik. Part 3 Satellites and vegetation: first order approach for estimating unstressed transpiration from meteorological satellite data, B.J. Choudhury and H.A.R. de Bruin; prediction of daily amplitudes of canopy temperatures using satellite information, T. Tanczer et al; remote sensing of earth's surface roughness at microwave frequency, K.P. Singh et al. (Part Contents).
