Book Description:

One of CHOICEs Outstanding Academic Books for 1996!

Review:

This excellent, comprehensive book is far more than an introduction to satellite meteorology; it begins with the basics of radiation and a physical understanding of measurements from space and how they are converted to useful parameters....Good index. Great material for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students.
