Media reviews

'... the most complete textbook I have seen on the subject ... This is a 'must-have' book for anyone interested in remote sensing of the ocean ... I highly recommend it for those teaching the subject.' The Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin '... because of the book's completeness and its thorough references it should remain a valuable reference on ocean remote sensing for years to come.' Eos, Transactions, American Geophysical Union '... a splendid candidate for filling the gap in coverage. ... I loved the early encounter with the listings of symbols, abbreviations, and acronyms and the pattern of listing references and recommendations for additional reading at the conclusion of each chapter, all of which are valuable features of the book. ... The material is easy to read and understand, current, well referenced, and sufficient to provide any student with a working knowledge of the important applications of these observations. ... An Introduction to Ocean Remote Sensing is an excellent book that helps fill a gap in most remote sensing textbooks by relating ocean remote sensing science and satellite technologies to real-world applications. ... I expect this book will enjoy widespread use within college and university ocean remote sensing curricula. I would have certainly put it to good use back in my faculty days and am glad to have it now as a ready reference.' Marine Technology Society Journal
