Satellite Remote Sensing in Climatoloy adopts a thematic approach to explaining contemporary concepts in the large overlap area between weather and climate processes and satellite remote sensing. A key emphasis involves the contribution of satellite data to the development of climate theory in particular the role of clouds in climate; climatic tele-connections and surface-atmosphere interactions; and large-scale features of the General Circulation such as vortices and cloud bands. Also emphasized is the importance of satellite information to the development of baseline regimes of climatically-significant variables and the monitoring of departures from those regimes as evidence of climatic anomalies and trends. This is an essential handbook for climatologists meteorologists and atmospheric scientists as well as scientists concerned with the applications of remote sensing and geographic information systems technologies.
