Substantial advances have been made during the last years in satellite-borne instrumentation and techniques to yield unprecedented spatial and temporal coverage of the Earth atmosphere and surface, including land, ocean, and snow/ice surfaces. Several physical parameters have been recorded in that way over the globe, for more than a decade, leading to specific studies on their coverage and accuracy, their comparison with in-situ data, and their contribution to our scientific knowledge. Variables as different as sea surface temperature, sea surface height, surface wave height, ocean current, wind, phytoplankton pigment concentration, ice, snow, atmospheric liquid water, water vapor, precipitation, clouds, convection, surface radiation budget, air-sea heat, moisture, momentum, fluxes, soil moisture, vegetation, phytosynthetically active radiation, evapotranspiration, were investigated. The 31 papers contained in this volume provide a description of monitoring the Earth environment from space. The book is intended for geophysicists, atmospheric physicists, meteorologists, oceanographers and remote sensors.
