  • Today, space technology is used as an excellent instrument for Earth observation applications. Data is collected using satellites and other available platforms for remote sensing. Remote sensing data collection detects a wide range of electromagnetic energy which is emitting, transmitting, or reflecting from the Earth's surface. Appropriate detection systems are needed to implement further data processing. Space technology has been found to be a successful application for studying climate change, as current and past data can be dynamically compared.

  • In essays with settings that range from the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming, to the mountain town of Leadville, Colorado, to the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, Trudy Dittmar weaves personal experience with diverse threads of subject matter to create unexpected connections between human nature and nature at large. Life stories, elegantly combined with mindful observations of animals, plants, landscape and the skies, theories in natural science, environmental considerations, and touches of art criticism and popular culture, offer insights into the linked analogies of nature and soul....

  • This welcome volume is a collection of articles principally adapted from articles published in the Philosophical Transactions triennial issue. It very largely reflects the views of younger scientists, and highlights how the Earth Sciences continue to delight us with new ideas and controversies. Many of the authors are research fellows, or former research fellows, of the Royal Society, and the editors have successfully assembled an entertainingly eclec- tic mix.

  • There has been a time when statistical modeling of observation equations was clear in disciplines like geodesy, geophysics, photogrammetry and practically always based on the conceptual arsenal of least square theory despite the different physical realities and laws involved in their respective observations.

  • Although in some respects more technical in their subjects and style than Darwin's "Journal," the books here reprinted will never lose their value and interest for the originality of the observations they contain. Many parts of them are admirably adapted for giving an insight into problems regarding the structure and changes of the earth's surface, and in fact they form a charming introduction to physical geology and physiography in their application to special domains.

  • Satellite altimetry was developed in the 1960s soon after the flight of artificial satellites became a reality. From the vantage point in space, a radar altimeter is able to measure the shape of the sea surface globally and frequently. Such measurements have a wide range of applications to oceanography, geodesy, and geophysics. The results are often revolutionary. For example, in oceanography; it takes a ship weeks or months to cross the ocean making measurements while the ocean is constantly changing its circulation, temperature, and salinity.

  • There are six sections in this book. The first section presents basic image processing techniques, such as image acquisition, storage, retrieval, transformation, filtering, and parallel computing. Then, some applications, such as road sign recognition, air quality monitoring, remote sensed image analysis, and diagnosis of industrial parts are considered.

  • Oceanography is a very complex science. Its field study, the knowledge of the oceans and the seas and their physical and biological characteristics, is fundamental to comprehend many oceanographic and ecological aspects that directly influence the human life and the planet health. From micro-scale, like coastal processes, to macro-scale, like Global Change, the oceans, the seas and the marine life, play the main role to maintain the earth equilibrium, both from a physical and a chemical point of view (e.g. carbon cycle and water masses dynamic)....

  • in sunlight. This resulted in the development of a wide variety of sophisticated and elegant sundials, which became the standard timekeepers. Sundials were also used as reference for other modes of time-keeping such as hourglasses. Time kept by this method is called apparent solar time. The time between successive appearances of the Sun at the local meridian defines the apparent solar day. Because of Earth’s elliptical orbit, the angular distance it covers per day varies. It moves more rapidly in winter when it approaches perihelion than in summer when it’s near aphelion....

  • When seen from space, “Planet Earth” is a mix of clouds, with the majority (two thirds) of the total surface under ocean water with the remaining third of land forming what we call continents, with various degrees of increasing albedo from open water bodies, vegetation, bare soil, rocks, deserts, and snow/ice packs. In a very short time (relative to Earth's age), the modern human civilization has conquered its neighboring space with probes, satellites, and vehicles carrying humans for exploration.

  • The distinction between geophysics and astronomy was once clear. Events on Earth constituted the realm of geophysics, while astronomy encompassed objects that are located many light years from the Sun and Earth. Interstellar clouds were “out there”, where they could be observed from isolated observatories nestled under the starry skies of the world’s deserts. Geology relied on shovels and drill bits to obtain samples of mud and ice that contained clues to the paleoclimate.

  • The steps needed to define a successful space science mission are numerous. The science drivers, the unique advantages this mission provides over past missions or earth-based experiments, and the payload that it includes are the key factors to guarantee its success. Finding the required information on such topics is not so straightforward, especially as they are usually outside the scope of undergraduate courses. The 2003 Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics aimed at providing a focused framework that helps fill this need.

  • The National Research Council was mandated by the government to research the use of space-based observation of the earth in order to determine environmental changes. The committees were asked to determine the questions that should be addressed, taking into account the intended federal and local agencies that would use the data acquired. They then had to prioritize the experiments and observations knowing that it will be impossible to fund them all. The results make extremely sobering reading.

  • Astronomy is the most ancient science humans have practiced on Earth. It is a science of extremes and of large numbers: extremes of time – from the big bang to infinity –, of distances, of temperatures, of density and masses, of magnetic field, etc.

  • In this paper the spline approximation was applied to the empirical vertical profiles of oceanographic parameters such as temperature, salinity or density to obtain a more precise and reliable result of interpolation. Our experiments with the case of observed temperature profiles in Eastern Sea show that the cubic polynomial spline method has a higher reliability and precision in a comparison with the linear interpolation and other traditional methods. The method was realized as a subroutine in our programs for oceanographic data management and manipulation.

  • Science is a way of making and using observations. The ap- plications of science have played a central role in the ad- vancement of civilization.The Latin origin of the word science (scire) can be translated as “to know.” While some people might think of scientific conclusions as unchanging facts, our understanding is never complete. As the understanding of nature grows, old ideas that no longer seem to fit our obser- vations are discarded. The so-called facts of science are often temporary while the methods of science (observation and analysis) are permanent....

  • The Earth is the only planet in our solar system that supports life. The complex process of evolution occurred on Earth only because of some unique environmental conditions that were present: water, an oxygen-rich atmosphere, and a suitable surface temperature. Climate change refers to a statistically significant variation in either the mean state of the climate or in its variability, persisting for an extended period (typically decades or longer).
