Arctic Ecological Research from Microwave Satellite by Gennady I. Belchansky

By Gennady I. Belchansky

lively (imaging radar) and passive (radiometer) microwave structures are more and more used for Arctic ecological study. regrettably, in the past ecologists drawn to distant sensing usually lacked entry to the complete suite of actual and analytical thoughts of microwave platforms, information processing, and ecological purposes simply because an appropriate reference ebook didn't exist.

Arctic Ecological study from Microwave satellite tv for pc Observations solutions this call for by means of summarizing the most microwave satellite tv for pc purposes for Arctic ecological learn. This e-book is precious to experts with a heritage in microwave suggestions, in addition to to different ecologists attracted to functions of microwave energetic and passive distant sensing for tundra, boreal wooded area, and Arctic sea-ice habitat and marine mammal stories.

It provides a quick advent to Arctic ecological difficulties, the function of satellite tv for pc sensing for tracking Arctic ecosystems, and similar info processing purposes. the amount then examines result of Arctic sea-ice habitat reports utilizing OKEAN-01 satellite tv for pc facts, then presents a comparative research of multisensor satellite tv for pc tracking of habitat utilizing OKEAN-01, SSM/I and AVHRR satellite tv for pc tools. It additionally describes the evaluate of relative details content material of ALMAZ-1, ERS-1, JERS-1 SAR, and Landsat-TM info for determining rainy tundra habitats. The booklet concludes with result of delicate boreal wooded area variety detection to watch strength affects of weather switch on boreal woodland structure.
