Author: R J Gurney; J L Foster; Claire L Parkinson
Publisher: Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 1993.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"Global environmental change is one of the most pressing international issues of the next century. There is a need to monitor the Earth's vital signs, from atmospheric ozone to tropical deforestation to sea level change. Models used to predict global changes have not yet fully used global observations data sets." "Satellite data sets will be vital in addressing global change issues, in determining natural  Read more...

There is a need to monitor the Earth's vital signs, from atmospheric ozone to tropical deforestation to sea level change. Models used to predict global changes have not yet fully used global observations data sets." "Satellite data sets will be vital in addressing global change issues, in determining natural variability and monitoring global and regional changes. This timely volume provides an illustration of the variety of satellite-derived global data sets now available, their uses, advantages and limitations, and the range of variation that has already been observed with these data. A team of distinguished contributors provide a highly illustrated and accessible account suitable for the general scientific reader."--Jacket." ;
