Remote sensing of snow and ice / W. Gareth Rees.

Title: Remote sensing of snow and ice / W. Gareth Rees.
Author(s): Rees, W. Gareth.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press, Taylor & Francis
Abstract: Reference work at senior undergraduate/postgraduate level. Chapter 1 introduces components of cryosphere, Chapter 2 principal techniques of remote sensing. Explains permafrost is less amenable to remote sensing and therefore not covered. Chapters 3 and 4 deal with image processing techniques and physical properties of snow and ice. Using examples from Arctic, Antarctic and elsewhere, Chapters 5-9 cover remote sensing of: snow cover; sea ice; freshwater ice; glaciers, ice sheets and ice shelves; icebergs. Concluding chapter examines what remote sensing has revealed about cryosphere, remaining technical challenges, etc.
