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.
