Naturally, different disciplines in the environmental sciences have reached
different degrees of sophistication in using remotely sensed data, a fact that is
amply illustrated by the material in this book. Meteorologists, because of the
importance of temperature profiles in the atmosphere, the requirement for global
data and the fact that the data can come from a single instrument, have been the
most numerous and sophisticated users of remotely sensed data. This
sophistication builds on ...

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 ...

(2005), the estimation of vegetation productivity using remotely sensed data has
generally made use of two approaches: (i) use of the measured spectral re
̄ectance to estimate the amount of absorbed photosynthetically active radiation (
APAR) (Choudhury, 1987); and (ii) establishment of an empirical relationship
between spectral re ̄ectance and productivity (Wylie et al., 1995). As chlorophyll
is one of the ingredients for photosynthesis the estimation of chlorophyll amount
can also ...

Furthermore, many applications of remotely sensed data are by their nature
regional or global in scope. Modern weather forecasting requires global data to
support increasingly capable computer forecasting models, and understanding
changes in the global environment requires accurate information on the state of
the atmosphere, oceans, and terrestrial ecosystems. There is a long history of
productive international exchanges of Earth data, including remotely sensed data
, for these ...
