Sergey Venevsky, in Encyclopedia of Ecology (Second Edition), Remote Sensing. Satellite remote sensing measuring entering and leaving flux of radiation from top of the atmosphere is one of the most powerful tools in climate change ecology. NASA at the moment uses 14 satellites of different types of orbits (sun-synchronous and geo-synchronous) with different type of sensors (passive. Introduction to Satellite Remote Sensing: Atmosphere, Ocean and Land Applications is the first reference book to cover ocean applications, atmospheric applications, and land applications of remote sensing.. Applications of remote sensing data are finding increasing application in fields as diverse as wildlife ecology and coastal recreation management.

Introduction to Satellite Remote Sensing: Atmosphere, Ocean, Land, and Cryosphere Applications [Book Review] Abstract: Until the publication of this book, there has not been any modern, up-to-date compendium on the history and physics of remote sensing, sensor technology, and applications across all areas of geoscience above the Earth’s surface.
A Review of: "Satellite Sensing of a Cloudy Atmosphere: Observing the Third Planet". Edited by A. HENDERSON-SELLERS. (London: Taylor and Francis Ltd, ) [Pp. ]. Abstract This study addresses the problem of four-dimensional (4D) estimation of a cloudy atmosphere on cloud-resolving scales using satellite remote sensing measurements. The motivation is to deve. The bispectral composite threshold (BCT) method (Jedlovec et al. ) uses multispectral channel differences to contrast clear and cloudy regions in satellite imagery. The BCT method uses the and micrometer spectral channels in a four-step cloud detection procedure, comprising of two spatial tests and two spectral tests. A new concept for cloud detection from observations by multispectral spaceborne imagers is proposed, and an algorithm comprising many pixel‐by‐pixel threshold tests is developed. Since in nature the.
With the emphasis on radiative transfer models, this new book covers the urgent needs for the transition from the experimental phase of microwave remote sensing to operational applications. This book covers all terrestrial aspects from clear to cloudy atmosphere, precipitation, ocean and land surfaces, vegetation, snow and ice. Henderson-Sellers A. () Satellite Sensing of a Cloudy Atmosphere: Observing the Third Planet (London: Taylor & Francis). Google Scholar The remaining references assume a more practical and detailed interest in the subject. Satellite data assimilation requires rapid and accurate radiative transfer and radiance gradient models. For a vertically stratified scattering and emitting atmosphere, the vector discrete-ordinate radiative transfer model (VDISORT) was developed to derive all Stokes radiance components at the top of the atmosphere. Latent heat flux (LE) and the corresponding water vapor lost from the Earth’s surface to the atmosphere, which is called Evapotranspiration (ET), is one of the key processes in the water cycle and energy balance of the global climate system. Satellite remote sensing is the only feasible technique to estimate LE over a large-scale region.
