International Geophysics #52: Atmosphere Ultraviolet Remote Sensingby Robert E. Huffman
Synopses & Reviews
Here is an interdisciplinary introduction to some of the key techniques and applications of the ultraviolet wavelength region. Ultraviolet methods are used in important applications such as:
* atmospheric ozone measurement,
* global auroral imaging, and
* ionospheric monitoring.
Ultraviolet measurements are used to monitor atmospheric ozone depletion and are essential to the development of global space weather systems.
In addition to providing the necessary fundametals for the effective use of the ultraviolet, this unique book also contains extensive references that lead readers to sources for more thorough investigation. The book is an essential reference for all those interested in ultraviolet remote sensing, ultraviolet astronomy, laboratory spectroscopy, lidar applications, and related fields.
