Publisher: EOS-Goddard Program Office 2005
Number of pages: 152
A highly intuitive, easily accessible remote sensing tutorial that hopefully will serve as a primer for the new user as well as a teaching tool for the educational community. We wanted this tutorial to provide a detailed understanding of the utility of the data in light of the fundamental principles of electromagnetic energy, especially as they relate to sensor design and function.

The ocean is the largest biosphere on Earth, covering nearly three-quarters of our planet's surface and occupying a volume of 1.3 billion cubic kilometers. Humankind has entered the 21st century having explored only a small fraction of the ocean.
