Introduction to the physics and techniques of remote sensing by Charles Elachi( Book )

26 editions published between 1987 and 2006 in English and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Second Edition of this authoritative book offers readers the essential science and engineering foundation needed to understand remote sensing and apply it in real-world situations. Thoroughly updated to reflect the tremendous technological leaps made since the publication of the first edition, this book covers the gamut of knowledge and skills needed to work in this dynamic field."--Jacket

Handbook of satellite orbits : from Kepler to GPS by Michel Capderou( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifty years after Sputnik, artificial satellites have become indispensable monitors in many areas, such as economics, meteorology, telecommunications, navigation and remote sensing. The specific orbits are important for the proper functioning of the satellites. This book discusses the great variety of satellite orbits, both in shape (circular to highly elliptical) and properties (geostationary, Sun-synchronous, etc.). This volume starts with an introduction into geodesy. This is followed by a presentation of the fundamental equations of mechanics to explain and demonstrate the properties for all types of orbits. Numerous examples are included, obtained through IXION software developed by the author. The book also includes an exposition of the historical background that is necessary to help the reader understand the main stages of scientific thought from Kepler to GPS. This book is intended for researchers, teachers and students working in the field of satellite technology. Engineers, geographers and all those involved in space exploration will find this information valuable. Michel Capderou's book is an essential treatise in orbital mechanics for all students, lecturers and practitioners in this field, as well as other aerospace systems engineers. --Charles Elachi, Director, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Electromagnetic wave propagation and source radiation in space-time periodic media by Charles Elachi( )

1 edition published in 1971 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The electromagnetic wave equations for the fields, potentials and Hertz vectors are derived and a Lorentz gauge is given for space-time dependent media. Electromagnetic wave propagation, electric and magnetic dipole radiation, and Cerenkov and transition radiation in sinusoidally space-time periodic dielectric, plasma and uniaxial plasma are studied and numerous radiation patterns are given. A special radiation effect in the uniaxial plasma is investigated. Finally the study is extended to general space-time periodic media (i.e., [epsilon] = [epsilon][subscript o][epsilon][subscript r] [1 + [epsilon][subscript 1] f(Kz - [Omega]t)] where f([Epsilon]) is a periodic function)
