Climate Applications of Satellite Remote Sensing,

Pagination or Media Count:
Meteorological satellites provide a wide range of valuable climate information. Applications range from systematic monitoring of the earths radiation budget -- measuring the energy differences that are controlling factors for the global climate systems -- to studying specifics of the local surface climatology. Examples are presented of the use of remotely-sensed data to provide important insights into the validation of climate theories and the factors that influence climate change. Other interpretations of the data allow us to deduce details of local surface climate differences and the seasonal progression of climatic elements, like precipitation and temperature, that are particularly to agriculture.
