Overview

This book covers the fundamental principles of measuring oceans from space, and also contains state-of-the-art developments in data analysis and interpretation and in sensors. Completely new will be material covering advances in oceanography that have grown out of remote sensing, including some of the global applications of the data. The variety of applications of remotely sensed data to ocean science has grown significantly and new areas of science are emerging to exploit the gobal datasets being recovered by satellites, particularly in relation to climate and climate change, basin-scale, air-sea interaction processes (e.g. El Nino) and the modelling, forecasting and prediction of the ocean.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
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)
