Advances in the use of NOAA AVHRR data for land applications
Kluwer, 1996 - Technology & Engineering - 479 pages
An up-to-date, detailed set of notes covering all aspects of NOAA AVHRR data collection, pre-processing, analysis and application. Includes many FTP sites, e-mail addresses and URL locations. Some chapters address particular aspects of the NOAA AVHRR system, such as radiometric calibration and geometric correction, while others provide general information of interest to any remote sensing study, such as radiative transfer modelling and atmospheric correction. The publication of a book that covers all important aspects of the treatment and understanding of the data in one volume makes the work a convenient, informative "recipe book" that is sure to become a favourite for all users of NOAA AVHRR data.
