This book is an introductory graduate-level text on atmospheric remote sensing. The basic interaction between radiation and the atmosphere is examined, and illustrated with actual sensing examples. The focus is on understanding the interactions rather than on presenting mathematical details. The text also serves to supplement atmospheric radiation topics, placing the technology and its application in the broader perspective of contemporary meteorology and atmospheric science. Each chapter is followed by a series of exercises, and Appendix 2 gives five computer projects designed for classroom applications.

Graeme L. Stephens is at Colorado State University.Review:
"An excellent introduction to remote sensing, especially for students who know very little about instrumental techniques"--Darin Toomey, University of California at Irvine
"An intellectually elegant treatment of fundamentals which are often lost in the rush of a rapidly developing and very productive branch of atmospheric science. Clear text, very useful problems and exercises."--Gabor Vali, University of Wyoming
"This text clearly addresses the essence of the problems encountered in atmospheric remote sensing without belaboring the mathematical minutiae. Numerous examples, problems and references are provided that enable the reader to gain a thorough understanding of the subtleties of remote sensing.
This is an excellent introduction to remote sensing of the atmosphere."--James A. Weinman, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
"An excellent overview of the remote-sensing field. The treatment is even-handed and his book is well-suited for an introductory course on the subject."--William C. Keene, University of Virginia
"This is a solid treatment of a tricky subject!"--Steve Stadler, Oklahoma State University
"Excellent approach! Stephens provides a global view."--C. Shabica, Northeastern Illinois University
