This book covers the fundamental principles of measuring oceans from space, and also contains state-of-the-art developments in data analysis and interpretation and in sensors. Completely new will be material covering advances in oceanography that have grown out of remote sensing, including some of the global applications of the data. The variety of applications of remotely sensed data to ocean science has grown significantly and new areas of science are emerging to exploit the gobal datasets being recovered by satellites, particularly in relation to climate and climate change, basin-scale, air-sea interaction processes (e.g. El Nino) and the modelling, forecasting and prediction of the ocean.A well developed network of drifting and moored buoys has been established for this purpose (Kilpatrick et ai, 2001) and is now ... (iii) the accuracy normally quoted for the performance of data sets such as the Pathfinder SST derived from empirical equations based on ... The way forward in response to these problems points to a need to switch from empirical algorithms to physically based algorithms.
