Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Satellite Monitoring of Inland and Coastal Water Quality: Retrospection, Introspection, Future Directions reviews how aquatic optics models can convert remote determinations of water color into accurate assessments of water quality. This book illustrates how this conversion can generate products of value for the environmental monitoring of optically complex inland and coastal waters.
The author emphasizes how terrestrial, aquatic, and wetland remote sensing are underutilized tools due to a lack of influential end-usership. He takes a realistic look at this disinterest and examines why it exists, how it can be abated, and the synergies that need to be activated among technologists, scientists, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, and water quality professionals.
Offering a guide to possible linkages between scientific products of remote sensing and their application to mandates and priorities of environmental stewards and policy-makers, this book uses the research and science agenda of Environment Canada as a template for generic environmental interests and concerns. It is hoped that this guide presents a compelling case for incorporation of aquatic remote sensing into protocols of ground-based environmental monitoring networks.

In recent years, however, multispectral scanning sensors with small resolution have come about. This has provided first the technology, then the science and finally the applications to measure water quality on a large scale. At the same time the public awareness of this progress has been decreasing because of the unfulfilled promises made in the past.
This book discusses the advances that have been made and how aquatic optics models can convert remote determinations of water color into accurate assessments of water quality. He then give addresses the chasm between water quality products and their potential end users.
This is not a heavily scientific work, instead it gives just enough of the science involved to show that the resulting information is valid.
