This book provides extensive insight on remote sensing of coastal waters from aircraft and space-based platforms. The primary focus of the book is optical remote sensing using passive instruments, to measure and analyze the coastal aquatic environment. The authors have gathered information from a variety of sources, to help non-specialists grasp new techniques and technology, to quickly produce useful data

Meet the Author

Dr. Richard Miller received the Ph.D. in biological oceanography from North Carolina State University in 1984. He is currently the Chief Scientist at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) at the Stennis Space Center. His research interests include the role that river-dominated coastal margins play in the global cycling of materials including carbon. He is involved in developing field instruments and computational technologies for the application of remote sensing to coastal environments. He has co-authored more than 80 papers in international journals and conferences.

Dr. Carlos Del Castillo received his Ph.D. in Oceanography from the Department of Marine Science, University of South Florida. In his dissertation work he described the optical properties of Colored Dissolved Organic Matter in waters of the Eastern Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and the Arabian Sea. Current research interest include how changes in chemical composition of Colored Dissolved Organic Matter affect optical properties of water, and the use of remote sensing to study transport of organic carbon by river plumes. Dr. Del Castillo is a researcher at NASA Stennis Space Center.

Brent McKee is a graduate of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill with a Ph.D. from North Carolina State University. He is currently a Full Professor at Tulane University.
