' … very well produced, extremely attractive volume. The book can be throughly recommended to those interested in global change studies and in discovering what satellites can tell us about the environment.' Weather
' … it is pleasing to discover a compendium of satellite imagery with its objectives based solely on observations, illustrated with an astounding number of colour maps and photographs … most agreeable price of £35.00 for a hardback … should find an important role as a reference source.' Progress in Physical Geography
'In short, every professional concerned with Earth sciences will certainly benefit from and enjoy reading the Atlas of Satellite Observations Related to Global Change. It is an important scientific reference for all Earth-science libraries. For those teaching graduate and advanced undergraduate students it is a modern and rich source of information.' Marlene Ferreira, World Meteorological Organization Bulletin
Global environmental change is one of the most pressing international issues of the next century. There is a need to monitor the Earth's vital signs, from atmospheric ozone to tropical deforestation to sea level change. Models used to predict global changes have not yet fully used global observational data sets. Satellite data sets will be vital in addressing global change issues, in determining natural variability and monitoring global and regional changes. This timely volume provides an illustration of the variety of satellite-derived global data sets now available, their uses, advantages and limitations, and the range of variation that has already been observed with these data. A team of distinguished contributors provide a highly illustrated and accessible account suitable for the general scientific reader.
