Advances in Passive Microwave Remote Sensing of Oceans (Hardcover) (Victor Raizer)
about this item
Today we have in the orbit two very recent passive microwave imaging radiometers dedicated to global monitoring of sea surface. This book demonstrates capabilities of passive microwave technique for enhanced observations of oceans. It outlines benefits and limitations of such methods and also establishes better knowledge of physical principles of microwave diagnostics. This work represents not only an introduction and complete description of the main principles of ocean microwave radiometry and imagery but also provides guidance for further experimental studies. It shows how advanced microwave technology has become an efficient tool for diagnostics of ocean phenomena.
