Optical Properties and Remote Sensing of Multicomponental Water Bodies

Optical Properties and Remote Sensing of Multicomponental Water Bodies This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date study of the use of remote sensing to examine the quality of water in lakes, oceans and coastal waters. It compares and contrasts results obtained from experiments with both clean and polluted waters, and offers various models that analyse problems connected with the thermal influence of oil on water. Optical Properties and Remote Sensing of Multicomponental Water Bodies looks at the variability of optically active substances and their characteristics in turbid and polluted water; shows how to interpret signals received from a satellite by deducing the amount of glint provided by the sun on the water and therefore the degree of pollution; provides interpretation of passive optical remote sensing data for coastal and lake waters, including water bodies with very low transparency; looks at light regimes at different depths in oceans and lakes to calculate pollution.
