It brings together contributions from an international team of scientists active in remote sensing and ocean research. Remote Sensing of the Marine Environment is a comprehensive, up-to-date resource for oceanographers and marine scientists interested in applications of satellite imagery and other remote sensing techniques to studying and monitoring ocean and coastal waters.
The volume consists of chapters on ocean productivity, circulation, pollution, wind, planetary waves, sea ice and coastal processes. The volume editor, James F.R. Gower, Ph.D., is a research scientist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, where he has explored applications of satellites to oceanography since 1971.
