9780471628910: Atmospheric Remote Sensing by Microwave Radiometry (Wiley Series in Remote Sensing and Image Processing)

A rapidly growing area, remote sensing is crucial to the effort of modeling the earth's atmosphere and collecting such fundamental data as temperature, winds, pressures, water vapor distribution, clouds and other active constituents. This information enables us to test existing models of the atmosphere's energy balance, depletion of the ozone layer, climatic trends and other essential environmental data. Also discussed is the application of microwave remote sensing techniques to the atmospheres of planets other than the earth.

From the Inside Flap:

Microwave remote sensing is central to scientists' efforts to model the Earth's atmosphere by collecting basic data on such constituents as temperature, pressure, winds, the distribution of water, vapor, clouds, and other active constituents. Such data enables scientists to test existing models of the atmosphere's energy balance, depletion of the ozone layer, climate trends, and other vital atmospheric processes.
Atmospheric Remote Sensing by Microwave Radiometry. Is a state-of-the-art volume on remote sensing of the atmosphere by microwave techniques. The focus of the books is on the varied applications of this approach for the purpose of determining atmospheric properties.
The applications of microwave remote sensing are presented from the ground up, beginning with remote sensing of the Earth's troposphere from ground stations and working outward to the solar family of atmospheres. The fundamentals of microwave remote sensing are first introduced, and include discussions of the fundamentals of microwave radiative transfer, measurement techniques, and atmospheric propagation. Further chapters discuss techniques for the determination of cloud, precipitation, upper atmospheric constituents, and temperature structure using ground-based and satellite instruments. One of the later chapters reports on the early results of microwave spectroscopy in the extremely important atmospheric distributions of ozone and chlorine monoxide, both measured by the Microwave Limb Sounder on the Upper Atmospheric Research Satellite.
Finally, the book presents the application of microwave remote sensing techniques to the atmospheres of planets other than the Earth's. These atmospheres are of interest in their own right, but also provide an invaluable test of our Earth-centered models and concepts.
The primary emphasis throughout this timely volume is on fundamentals and methods which will retain their value as newer results from these applications are discovered.

About the Author:

MICHAEL A. JANSSEN has over twenty years experience in the microwave remote sensing of the atmospheres of the Earth and planets, and in the development of ground- and space-based radiometers for astrophysics and remote sensing. He is a member of the Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) mission and the Cassini radar science teams, and was recently awarded the NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal for his contributions to COBE. He is currently Manager of the Space Physics and Astrophysics Section of the Earth and Space Sciences Division at Caltech's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
