Optical Remote Sensing: Science and Technology (Optical Science and Engineering, Volume 84)

Buy
In recent years, much has transpired in the field of remote sensing and, in particular, polarization. Polarization is an outgrowth of multiple, highly accurate photometric measurements. Plane polarization is the difference between precision photometric measurements in two mutually perpendicular directions. Circular polarization is used as a refinement in the complete description of the optical properties of surfaces and of the atmosphere in terms of Stokes parameters.

This book explores advanced concepts in the mathematical representation of polarization, descriptors, and various optical elements used in the analysis of polarization in multiple applications—highlighting tried and proven techniques to enhance aircraft and satellite technology and determine the photometric and polarimetric properties of atmosphere, ground surfaces, and inner and outer space. Experiments such as the NASA Lear Airborne Observatory and the Mariner explorers are presented as a basis for many of the recent advances in remote sensing and polarization.

Designed for use in remote sensing courses and as a reference text, the level of treatment is appropriate for undergraduates, but advanced high school students may investigate the material with great advantage. The book also serves as a reference for graduate-level college students and researchers.

The book will be useful to students and workers in aircraft and satellite remote sensing in geology and atmospheric sciences, the military, natural resources, agriculture, forestry, ranching, urban resources, hydrology, pollution (marine and atmospheric), the environment, limnology, seismology, and oceanography.

Queer Theology: Rethinking the Western Body

This book has been several years in the making, and I must thank all those who have worked

on the project over that time. My greatest gratitude is of course to the contributors, to those who have been with the project from the first, and those who joined later, when others had fallen away. To all of them I owe more than it is
