About this book

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)


Fundamentals of Ocean Remote Sensing - Why study the ocean from space? - Sensors for remote sensing.- Ocean Colour - Variable wavelength remote sensing.- Sea Surface Temperature - Infrared measurement of SST - Microwave radiometry.- Ocean Surface Topography - Radar altimeters.- Sea Surface Roughness - Active microwave remote sensing of sea surface roughness.- Remote Sensing in the Wider Oceanographic Context - Enhancing the role of remote sensing in ocean science.- The way forward - An Evaluation of the achievements of satellite oceanography.
