Contents Notes
chapter 1 Introduction -- chapter 2 Ocean Phenomena -- chapter 3 Microwave Emission of the Ocean -- chapter 4 Simulation and Prediction of Ocean Data -- chapter 5 High-Resolution Multiband Techniques and Observations -- chapter 6 Applications for Advanced Studies -- chapter 7 Summary. This book demonstrates the capabilities of passive microwave technique for enhanced observations of ocean features, including the detection of (sub)surface events and/or disturbances while laying out the benefits and boundaries of these methods. It represents not only an introduction and complete description of the main principles of ocean microwave radiometry and imagery, but also provides guidance for further experimental studies. Furthermore, it expands the analysis of remote sensing methods, models, and techniques and focuses on a high-resolution multiband imaging observation concept. Such an advanced approach provides readers with a new level of geophysical information and data acquisition granting the opportunity to improve their expertise on advanced microwave technology, now an indispensable tool for diagnostics of ocean phenomena and disturbances.
