About this book

This book is a comprehensive discussion of the applications of both satellite remote sensing and advanced ground-based remote sensing as related to polar science and operations. It discusses the various passive and active remote sensor types before concentrating on specific geophysical applications. Its interdisciplinary approach - including atmospheric chemistry, meteorology, climate and radiation balance, sea-ice studies, physical oceanography, glaciology, ecology and hydrology - means that major advances and publications are highlighted, together with the state of the art in each area.

Polar Remote Sensing

  • describes satellite remote sensing applications to all polar-related disciplines
  • provides suggestions for applications of satellite remote sensing to polar research
  • contains significant new information on Earth's polar regions
  • discusses sophisticated, ground-based remote sensing applications
  • summarises fundamental principles of detectors, imaging and geophysical product retrieval.

Reviews

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)
