Earth From Above: Using color-coded satellite images to examine the global environment (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Earth from Above provides an easy

introduction to understanding and interpreting satellite images, using

illustrative examples to instruct on the fantastically informative new global

data sets. Beginning with two short chapters on visible satellite images and

radiation, the book then covers six key Earth-atmosphere variables on such

environmentally important topics as the Antarctic ozone hole, El Nino,

deforestation, the missing carbon dilemma, and the effects of sea ice, snow

cover, and volcanoes on atmospheric temperatures. A final chapter broadens the

discussion to consider satellite Earth observations in general.

The book is heavily illustrated, including

photographs, maps, schematic diagrams, and 50 color-coded satellite images. Each

section concludes with a list of questions encouraging the reader to review the

text and, in the case of sections with satellite image, to examine the images

and find answers from them. Answers to all questions are provided at the back of

the book.
