Part of the Springer Praxis Books book series (PRAXIS)


The motivation for the writing of this book came from the influence and inspiration of the late Kirill Kondratyev (see Figure 1.1). Kondratyev, a full member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Academician) from 1982, was a prominent scientist in the field of atmospheric and environmental sciences. Throughout his whole career he was involved in research on atmospheric radiation problems relevant to the physical basis of the Earth’s climate. He contributed greatly to the development of remotesensing techniques for environmental studies as well as to global change research. He was the author or co-author of over one thousand scientific papers and a hundred monographs.
