Arctic Ecological Research from Microwave Satellite Observations summarizes the main microwave satellite applications for Arctic ecological research. This book is invaluable to specialists with a background in microwave techniques, and to other ecologists interested in applications of microwave active and passive remote sensing for tundra, boreal forest, and Arctic marine mammal studies. It examines results of Arctic sea-ice habitat studies using OKEAN-01 satellite data, and analyzes multisensor satellite monitoring of habitat using OKEAN-01, SSM/I and AVHRR instruments. It describes the evaluation of relative information content of ALMAZ-1, ERS-1, JERS-1 SAR, and Landsat-TM data for identifying wet tundra habitats.
