 About the Book 

The papers presented review the recent developments in remote monitoring of surface temperatures which will play an important role in future global change studies. The problem of remote sensing of surface temperatures is considered and measurements made by a variety of techniques evaluated. The results obtained from current satellites are detailed and various techniques to measure temperature, emissivity, modelling of vegetation, and aircraft presented. The problem of separating the effects of variable spectral emissivity from the determination of surface kinetic temperature using multispectral thermal infrared measurements is discussed. With a view to the future, prospective satellite systems are examined. Included also is a section entitled Motions deduced from Satellite Imagery, part of which discusses the effectiveness of cloud-drift winds in numerical forecasts.Finally, the Applications of the Data of Multiple Satellites and High Re
