Using Remote Sensing in Atmospheric Applications
Monitoring gases, radiation, water vapor, and other data using remotely-sensed images have led to an expanded comprehension of physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere over the past decade. LiDAR has been used to monitor trace gases from the ground level up to the stratosphere with a high range resolution. RADAR has been used for weather forecasting and many other tracking of weather related phenomena.
