This book contains a selection of refereed papers presented at the 6 Specialist Meeting on Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Environment held in Florence, Italy on March ,   Written by leading experts in optical radar, or lidar, this book brings all the recent practices up-to-date. With a Foreword by one of the founding fathers in the area. Its broad cross-disciplinary scope should appeal to scientists ranging from the view of optical sciences to environmental engineers. Optical remote sensing has matured to become a lead method for cross-disciplinary .

Remote sensing is a technology that engages electromagnetic sensors to measure and monitor changes in the earth’s surface and atmosphere. Normally this is . This book is an introduction to the use of the ultraviolet for remote sensing of the Earth's atmosphere. It covers the Earth's UV radiative environment, experimental techniques, and current applications. it is my intention to provide the information needed to "make a first approximation" concerning the use of the ultraviolet and to provide access through the literature for a more thorough study.*.

This book is an introductory graduate-level text on atmospheric remote sensing. The basic interaction between radiation and the atmosphere is examined, and illustrated with actual sensing examples. The focus is on understanding the interactions rather than on presenting mathematical details.3/5(2).   This book, based on contributions from 40 leading experts, offers a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the methods, techniques and recent advances in applications of remote sensing of the cryosphere. Examples of the topics covered include: • .

Remote Sensing of Aerosols, Clouds, and Precipitation compiles recent advances in aerosol, cloud, and precipitation remote sensing from new satellite observations.

The book examines a wide range of measurements from microwave (both active and passive), visible, and infrared portions of the spectrum. The book provides fundamental as well as practical knowledge of remote sensing of myriad topics pertaining to water resources, disasters, and urban areas such as hydrology, water resources, water use, water productivity, floods, wetlands, snow and ice, nightlights, geomorphology, droughts and drylands, disasters, volcanoes, fire, and smart cities.

The papers presented in this session describe several exciting opportunities for atmospheric remote sensing using GPS. These applications are enabled either by observing the GPS signal after it has passed through the Earth's atmosphere using a ground-based receiver or observing the signal after it has passed through the limb of the Earth's atmosphere using a receiver on board a satellite.

Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Earth's Surface and Atmosphere - CRC Press Book This book contains a selection of refereed papers presented at the 6 Specialist Meeting on Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Environment held in Florence, Italy on March Most remote-sensing retrieval algorithms use the remote-sensing reflectance R r s = L w ∕ E d or an equivalent nondimensional reflectance ρ = π L w ∕ E d.

(If L w were directionally isotropic, R r s = 1 ∕ π, so ρ is the ratio of the actual R r s to an idealized isotropic remote-sensing reflectance. Remote Sensing of Environment - An Interdisciplinary Journal.
