Download Arctic Ecological Research from Microwave Satellite by Gennady I. Belchansky PDF

By Gennady I. Belchansky

Lively (imaging radar) and passive (radiometer) microwave structures are more and more used for Arctic ecological examine. regrettably, in the past ecologists drawn to distant sensing usually lacked entry to the whole suite of actual and analytical strategies of microwave structures, info processing, and ecological functions simply because an appropriate reference e-book didn't exist. Arctic Ecological examine from Microwave satellite tv for pc Observations solutions this call for by way of summarizing the most microwave satellite tv for pc functions for Arctic ecological study. This booklet is helpful to experts with a heritage in microwave recommendations, in addition to to different ecologists drawn to purposes of microwave energetic and passive distant sensing for tundra, boreal wooded area, and Arctic sea-ice habitat and marine mammal reports. It provides a quick advent to Arctic ecological difficulties, the position of satellite tv for pc sensing for tracking Arctic ecosystems, and similar information processing functions. the amount then examines result of Arctic sea-ice habitat reports utilizing OKEAN-01 satellite tv for pc information, then presents a comparative research of multisensor satellite tv for pc tracking of habitat utilizing OKEAN-01, SSM/I and AVHRR satellite tv for pc tools. It additionally describes the evaluate of relative info content material of ALMAZ-1, ERS-1, JERS-1 SAR, and Landsat-TM info for deciding on rainy tundra habitats. The ebook concludes with result of delicate boreal woodland style detection to observe power affects of weather swap on boreal wooded area constitution.

Such parameters include the ice cover structure, the ice age and thickness associated with it, the sea ice boundary and its variability in time. However, it is not simple to elaborate a model of radar reflection from the ice cover. There are certain difficulties, because the ice cover is very complicated. In addition, the problem becomes even more difficult to tackle because the conditions of ice generation are extremely diversified and can affect the process of scattering. Therefore, the methods for ice cover sensing and processing the data in such investigations are based on the summarized experimental data on the function of ice age (thickness), wavelength, radiation angle, polarization etc.
