Section 1.2 focuses on the spectra of the electromagnetic waves used for remote
sensing, while showing the attenuation characteristics of radiowaves in the
atmosphere. Section 1.3 illustrates the remote sensors using electromagnetic
waves. It shows passive and active sensors with their typical examples as well as
platforms for remote sensors. Section 1.4 explains remote sensing from artificial
satellites, which plays an essential role in global environmental measurement.
Section 1.5 ...

Introduction This book has illustrated the many types of global data sets that are
now becoming available from the investment in Earth-orbiting satellites. Many of
these data sets provide time series of geophysical information that can be used
quantitatively in numerical computer models. This is a marked advance over the
situation in the early days of remote sensing (1960s and early 1970s), when the
data were poorly calibrated and only used qualitatively. Naturally, different
disciplines ...

Yet, this information is difficult to measure remotely because most spaceborne
imagers have resolutions on the order of meters to hundreds of meters and SR
can vary significantly below these scales. One way to measure SR is to exploit
differential shadowing in stereo images, and in particular, Advanced Spaceborne
Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER), with its nadir (3N) and
backward-looking (3B) near-infrared channels. We have proposed a simple ratio
of ...

The United States, in particular, has made a strong commitment to the
development and operation of new satellite remote sensing systems for global
change research.1 By the end of this century, these systems will generate
prodigious quantities of data, which will arrive on Earth in a range of formats. If
the United States is not prepared to manage efficiently the increase in quantities
of remotely sensed data, it will not be able to reap the full benefits of its
investment in its satellite systems ...

Therefore, although techniques for the remote sensing of chlorophyll amount
have progressed since the 1970s and 1980s their applications remain at the
heart of Kondratyev's latter-day research on anthropogenic eects on the state of
planet Earth. Three particular applications capture well the major ecodynamic
topics he pursued: vegetation productivity, vegetation stress, and land cover
mapping. 5.5.1 Vegetation productivity According to Reeves et al. (2005), the

The expansion of global change research has opened a Pandora's box of data
requirements of increasingly diverse parameters. Initially, environmental
monitoring was confined to the condition of the biosphere with little regard to the
overarching agents of change. As we improve our understanding of the
interactions of the various processes involved, so too does our identification of
the key factors lying at the heart of global change. The ever- broadening remit of
global change ...
