Remote Sensing of tropical regions
SWALIM reference library
(Extract from the preface)The principal purpose of this book is to demonstrate the unique capabilities of modern remote sensing instruments for the observation and monitoring of such complicated natural zones as the tropics. The aim of the first part of the book is to substantiate the scientific rationale for low latitude studies (Chapter 1) and to consider the subject of low latitude processes and their interactions with global climate change. Emphasis has been laid on the specific features of low latitude conditions, such as tropical cyclones (Chapter 2), the mesoscale tropical systems (Chapter 3), the dynamic ocean features in tropical parts of ocean (Chapter 4), the temperature and humidity structure of the tropical atmosphere (Chapter 5).
