Remote Sensing of Climate provides cutting-edge techniques in remote sensing of climate variability and the environment. The book focuses on methods and data analytics, advancements in scientific research in the field, and further proffers recommendations on the possible knowledge gaps and future scientific research directions. It covers eight key themes of remote sensing and climate variability, including discussions on how the various aspects from each chapter of the themes interrelate. It also integrates several divergent perspectives on remote sensing and climate variability and the environment to show the interrelationships between the perspectives.

This is an important reference for those in education and research working on remote sensing and climate science who need methods, data analytics, case studies, research strides, and key knowledge gaps in the field.

Key Features

  • Discusses advancements and future research directions in remote sensing for climate variability in a variety of environments
  • Includes simplified and condensed methodologies and data analytics
  • Provides case studies on remote sensing of climate variability, both of the Northern hemisphere temperate systems which are little affected by climate variability, and the greater-impacted global south
