Remote Sensing of Aerosols, Clouds, and Precipitation compiles the recent advancements made within the theme of aerosols, clouds, and precipitation remote sensing by using new and upcoming satellite observations. It includes studies from a wide range of measurements including microwave both active and passive , visible, and infrared portions of the spectrum. Contributors are experts from the state of the art research in atmospheric remote sensing using space borne, airborne, as well as ground based datasets, but with the focus on supporting earth observation satellite missions for aerosols, clouds, and precipitation studies. Remote Sensing of Aerosols, Clouds, and Precipitation serves as a reference for scientists from a wide range of subject domains, including, remote sensing, earth science, electromagnetics, climate physics, and space engineering. Operational forecasters, meteorologists, geospatial experts, modelers, policy makers, and environmental experts should also find the book very valuable. Presents new approaches in the field including new results and further research opportunities of new satellite measurements data Focuses on how remote sensing systems can be designed/developed and used to solve outstanding problems in Earth and Atmospheric sciences, which agencies such as NASA, NOAA and ESA routinely expect the scientific community to be researching Edited by a dynamic team of editors with a mixture of highly skilled and qualified authors offering world-leading expertise in the field
