About this book

This work will be a comprehensive multidisciplinary discussion of the applications of satellite remote sensing - advanced ground-based remote sensing, as both are related to polar science and operations. Discussion is provided on the various passive and active remote sensor types in sufficient detail to be self-contained, with numerous references for further reading. Subsequent chapters will be devoted to specific geophysical applications, including principles of retrieval algorithms, with brief reviews of major remote sensing advances and publications in each discipline. Also included will be a review of the current state of the science in each discipline. The final chapters will address current satellite data availability, and the use of satellite data in support of expeditions and field operations.

From the reviews: "This book is written for polar remote sensing specialists, or those who want to know what we do, or can do, or have discovered. ! I think that what this book does really well is to present extensive and up-to-date surveys of applications of satellite remote sensing methods applied to the polar atmosphere and to sea ice. The value of this aspect of the work is enhanced by the copious bibliographies -- 138 pages or so, of which more than 100 are in the sea-ice chapter." (W. G. Rees, Polar Record, Vol. 43, 2007)
