Satellite Monitoring of Inland and Coastal Water Quality: Retrospection, Introspection, Future Directions reviews how aquatic optics models can convert remote determinations of water color into accurate assessments of water quality. This book illustrates how this conversion can generate products of value for the environmental monitoring of optically complex inland and coastal waters.

The author emphasizes how terrestrial, aquatic, and wetland remote sensing are underutilized tools due to a lack of influential end-usership. He takes a realistic look at this disinterest and examines why it exists, how it can be abated, and the synergies that need to be activated among technologists, scientists, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, and water quality professionals.

Offering a guide to possible linkages between scientific products of remote sensing and their application to mandates and priorities of environmental stewards and policy-makers, this book uses the research and science agenda of Environment Canada as a template for generic environmental interests and concerns. It is hoped that this guide presents a compelling case for incorporation of aquatic remote sensing into protocols of ground-based environmental monitoring networks.

Review:

The book is a great read and will be of interest to people who wish to examine how science can be shaped and can shape public sentiment, and to environmental scientists, students, and policy and decision makers who wish to understand the science and possible applications of remote sensing of inland and coastal waters. ...the author creates a clear picture of the successes and failures of this field. He presents numerous suggestions and illustrations of how remote sensing can emerge into a supportive definitive science rather than a support of a proposed or established policy.
-Elijah W. Ramsey, III, Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing, Vol. 72, No. 11, November 2006
