  • Summarizes five characteristics of polarization remote sensing, including multi-angle reflection physical features (Chapter 2), multispectral chemical properties (Chapter 3), roughness and density structure properties (Chapter 4), characteristics of info-background high contrast ratio filter (Chapter 5), and the features of radiative energy transfer (Chapter 6)
  • Reveals important connotations of atmospheric polarized remote sensing, including the nature and physical characteristics of the full-sky polarization pattern (Chapter 7), regional characteristics of atmospheric polarization neutral points and decoupling of ground-atmospheric parameters (Chapter 8), and multi-angle stereoscopic observation chromatography of atmospheric particles under full-sky polarization vector field (Chapter 9)
  • Introduces new areas in polarization, including bionic polarization automatic navigation based on earth’s polarization vector field (Chapter 10), polarization remote sensing methods for advanced space detection and a global change study (Chapter 11)
