Description

Written by a pioneer in the field, this unique volume is the only one of its kind to explore advanced concepts in the mathematical representation of polarization, descriptors, and various optical elements used in the analysis of polarization in multiple applications. The book highlights tried and proven techniques to enhance aircraft and satellite technology and to determine the photometric and polarimetric properties of atmosphere, ground surfaces, and inner and outer space. Enriched by nearly 600 references Optical Remote Sensing contemplates the applications of this technology in the study of the air, sea, sky, and stars and considers the detection and measurement of polarized radiation.
