Dan Lubin and Robert Massom

Polar Remote SensingPolar Remote Sensing is a two-volume work providing a comprehensive, multidisciplinary discussion of the applications of satellite remote sensing.

Volume 1 focuses on the atmosphere and polar oceans. It contains information about the applications of satellite remote sensing in all polar-related disciplines. including atmospheric chemistry, meteorology, climate and radiation balance, sea-ice studies, glaciology, ecology and oceanography, as well as operational activities. It also provides a brief review of the current state-of-the-art of each discipline, including current issues and questions. Various passive and active remote sensor types are discussed, and the book then concentrates on specific geophysical applications. Its interdisciplinary approach means that major advances and publications are highlighted.
