This book provides extensive insight on remote sensing of coastal waters from aircraft and space-based platforms. The primary focus of the book is optical remote sensing using passive instruments, to measure and analyze the coastal aquatic environment. The authors have gathered information from a variety of sources, to help non-specialists grasp new techniques and technology, to quickly produce useful data
Dr. Richard Miller received the Ph.D. in biological oceanography from North Carolina State University in 1984. He is currently the Chief Scientist at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) at the Stennis Space Center. His research interests include the role that river-dominated coastal margins play in the global cycli...
