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 examine. regrettably, in the past ecologists drawn to distant sensing frequently lacked entry to the whole suite of actual and analytical options of microwave platforms, information processing, and ecological purposes simply because an appropriate reference publication didn't exist.

Arctic Ecological examine from Microwave satellite tv for pc Observations solutions this call for through summarizing the most microwave satellite tv for pc functions for Arctic ecological learn. This booklet is precious to experts with a history in microwave suggestions, in addition to to different ecologists attracted to purposes of microwave lively and passive distant sensing for tundra, boreal woodland, and Arctic sea-ice habitat and marine mammal stories.

It provides a short advent to Arctic ecological difficulties, the function of satellite tv for pc sensing for tracking Arctic ecosystems, and comparable information processing purposes. the amount then examines result of Arctic sea-ice habitat stories utilizing OKEAN-01 satellite tv for pc info, then offers 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 assessment of relative info content material of ALMAZ-1, ERS-1, JERS-1 SAR, and Landsat-TM info for opting for rainy tundra habitats. The e-book concludes with result of delicate boreal woodland sort detection to watch capability affects of weather switch on boreal wooded area structure.
