Summary

Filling the gap for a comprehensive one-stop reference and textbook geared towards graduate students and practicing specialists, this book provides complete coverage of the relevant atmospheric parameters derived using satellites today, as well as a sound understanding of the underlying physics, thus helping readers apply and optimize the methods. Following a refresher in radiative transfer and celestial mechanics, this text covers imaging and sounding, treating the retrieval of ozone, clouds, aerosols, and surface properties. Throughout, the mathematical derivations are given, and each chapter includes between five and ten exercises with the solutions available separately. A must have for environmental and atmospheric researchers, as well as for those working in industrial sectors involved with satellite based sounding systems.
