About this book

This book gives a much needed explanation of the basic physical principles of radiative transfer and remote sensing, and presents all the instruments and retrieval algorithms in a homogenous manner. It provides an easy path from theory to practical algorithms in one easily accessible volume, making the connection between theoretical radiative transfer and individual practical solutions to retrieve aerosol information from remote sensing, and providing the specifics and intercomparison of all current and historical retrieval methods.


1. Introduction.- 2. Absorption and scattering by molecules and aerosols.- 3. Radiative transfer in the earth's atmosphere.- 4. Direct observation of th4 sun.- 5. observation of diffuse solar radiation and the influence of aerosols.- 6. passive shortwave remote sensing from the ground.- 7. Shortwave remote sensing from space.- 8. Major recent or present instruments for shortwave remote sensing.- 9. Longwave passive remote sensing.- 10. Active lidar remote sensing.- 11. Results, the present situation and plans for the future.
