    (source: Nielsen Book Data) Summary Written by leading experts in optical radar, or lidar, this book brings all the recent practices up-to-date and covers a multitude of applications, from atmospheric sciences to environmental protection. Its broad cross-disciplinary scope should appeal to both the experienced scientist and the novice in the field. Optical remote sensing involves acquisition and analysis of optical data – electromagnetic radiation captured by the sensing modality after reflecting off an area of interest on ground. Optical image acquisition modalities have come a long way – from gray-scale photogrammetric images to .

    Figure 4 also shows the plane irradiance at the TOA and sea surface. Water-vapor and absorption bands centered near and nm reduce the sea-level to essentially zero in those spectral regions.. Most remote-sensing retrieval algorithms use the remote-sensing reflectance or an equivalent nondimensional reflectance. (If were directionally isotropic,, so is the ratio of the actual to an. @article{osti_, title = {Remote sensing: optics and optical systems}, author = {Slater, P N}, abstractNote = {The foundation for those wishing to pursue applications in remote sensing in which optical techniques and sensors are employed is provided.

      Laser beams can be used as long-range spectroscopic probes of the chemical composition and physical state of the atmosphere. The spectroscopic, optical, and laser requirements for atmospheric laser remote sensing are reviewed, and the sensitivity and limitations of the technique are described. A sampling of recent measurements includes the detection of urban air pollution and Cited by: This book is a compilation of papers which represent an overview of the present state of development of optical and laser remote sensing tech­ nology. The subjects covered include both passive and active remote sen­ sing techniques in the UV, visible, and IR spectral regions. related laser and detector technology, and atmospheric propagation.

Optical remote sensing spans the range of electromagnetic wavelengths from the visible to the thermal infrared (IR) making images from both reflected and emitted radiation from the Earth's surface and overlying atmosphere.

Optical remote sensing depends on the sun as the sole source of illumination. The solar irradiation spectrum above the atmosphere can be modeled by a black body radiation spectrum having a source temperature of K, with a peak irradiation located at about nm wavelength.

Alexander Kokhanovsky is a remote sensing expert specializing in optical remote sensing of atmosphere from space. He has worked at several leading scientific and space exploration organizations such as Institute of Physics (Minsk, Belarus), Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Tokyo, Japan), Imperial College (London, UK), Institute of Remote Sensing of Bremen University (Bremen.

The chapter concludes the following points: (1) remote sensing of the earth's surface is limited to spectral transmission windows in the atmosphere; (2) materials on the earth's surface may potentially be identified by their spectral–temporal optical reflectance signatures; and (3) therefore, a key component of remote sensing is repetitive.

The lidar method (li for light instead of ra for radio) is thus practically as old as the laser itself. In the beginning, measurements using light scattering of aerosols and dust particles were at the focus of attention, e.g., for investigating v- ibility or cloud heights.5/5(3).
