Remote Sensing of Aerosols, Clouds, and Precipitation compiles recent advances in aerosol, cloud, and precipitation remote sensing from new satellite observations. The book examines a wide range of measurements from microwave (both active and passive), visible, and infrared portions of the spectrum.

The book provides fundamental as well as practical knowledge of remote sensing of myriad topics pertaining to water resources, disasters, and urban areas such as hydrology, water resources, water use, water productivity, floods, wetlands, snow and ice, nightlights, geomorphology, droughts and drylands, disasters, volcanoes, fire, and smart cities.

The papers presented in this session describe several exciting opportunities for atmospheric remote sensing using GPS. These applications are enabled either by observing the GPS signal after it has passed through the Earth's atmosphere using a ground-based receiver or observing the signal after it has passed through the limb of the Earth's atmosphere using a receiver on board a satellite.

Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Earth's Surface and Atmosphere - CRC Press Book This book contains a selection of refereed papers presented at the 6 Specialist Meeting on Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Environment held in Florence, Italy on March Most remote-sensing retrieval algorithms use the remote-sensing reflectance R r s = L w ∕ E d or an equivalent nondimensional reflectance ρ = π L w ∕ E d.

(If L w were directionally isotropic, R r s = 1 ∕ π, so ρ is the ratio of the actual R r s to an idealized isotropic remote-sensing reflectance.

Remote Sensing of Atmospheres and Oceans presents the technical proceedings of a workshop on the interpretation of remotely sensed data, held in Williamsburg, Virginia in May The main topic of the workshop is the interpretation and assessment of measurements acquired in remote sounding of different atmospheric and ocean parameters.

All remote sensing data is based on measurements of electromagnetic radiation. Meteorologists use a vast array of remote sensing instruments to measure the atmosphere.

The key to properly interpreting each data set is to understand the advantages and limitations of the instrument. Remote sensing of irrigated areas can be difficult in these regions as rainfed areas have similar characteristics.

We present methods to address this challenge and enhance the contrast between neighboring rainfed and irrigated areas, including weather-sensitive scene selection, applying recently developed composite indices and calculating.

Figure 4 also shows the plane irradiance at the TOA and sea surface. Water-vapor and absorption bands centered near and nm reduce the sea-level to essentially zero in those spectral regions.
