GNSS Remote Sensing: Theory, Methods and Applications


by: Jin Shuanggen, Estel Cardellach, Feiqin Xie
The versatile and available GNSS signals can detect the Earth’s surface environments as a new, highly precise, continuous, all-weather and near-real-time remote sensing tool. This book presents the theory and methods of GNSS remote sensing as well as its applications in the atmosphere, oceans, land and hydrology. Ground-based atmospheric sensing, space-borne atmospheric sensing, reflectometry, ocean remote sensing, hydrology sensing as well as cryosphere sensing with the GNSS will be discussed per chapter in the book.

The Cryosphere


by: Shawn J. Marshall

The cryosphere encompasses the Earth's snow and ice masses. It is a critical part of our planet's climate system, one that is especially at risk from climate change and global warming. The Cryosphere provides an essential introduction to the subject, written by one of the world's leading experts in Earth-system science.

In this primer, glaciologist Shawn Marshall introduces readers to the cryosphere and the broader role it plays in our global climate system. After giving a concise overview, he fully explains each component of the cryosphere and how it works--seasonal snow, permafrost, river and lake ice, sea ice, glaciers, ice sheets, and ice shelves.

Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere


by: Marco Tedesco

The cryosphere, that region of the world where water istemporarily or permanently frozen, plays a crucial role on ourplanet. Recent developments in remote sensing techniques, and theacquisition of new data sets, have resulted in significant advancesin our understanding of all components of the cryosphere and itsprocesses.

This book, based on contributions from 40 leading experts,offers a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the methods,techniques and recent advances in applications of remote sensing ofthe cryosphere.
