Covers the fundamental principles of measuring oceans from space, whilst also containing state-of-the-art developments in data analysis and interpretation and in sensors.
From the reviews: "The book replaces the highly popular 'Satellite Oceanography' ! . It provides a clear introduction to the fundamentals of satellite oceanography and the sensor technologies that are employed, which would be useful for teachers and researchers in the field. However, it can also act as a remote sensing guide ! . The book is suitable as an undergraduate/postgraduate background reading textbook, but also as a scientific reference book for practitioners." (Dr. Samantha Lavender, Geomatics World, Vol. 13 (4), May/June, 2005)
