Analysis of SAR Data of the Polar Oceans: Recent Advances by Professor Dr. Costas Tsatsoulis, Dr. Ronald Kwok (auth.)

By Professor Dr. Costas Tsatsoulis, Dr. Ronald Kwok (auth.)

This booklet experiences fresh advances within the use of SAR imagery for operational functions and for helping technological know-how investigations of the polar oceans. the $64000 parameters which are extracted from spaceborne SAR imagery are mentioned. Algorithms utilized in such analyses are defined and information platforms utilized in generating the ocean ice items are provided.

Models in Spatial Analysis (Geographical Information Systems Series (ISTE-GIS))

This name offers a extensive evaluation of the differing kinds of versions utilized in complex spatial research. The types hindrance spatial association, situation components and spatial interplay styles from either static and dynamic views. every one bankruptcy offers a vast evaluate of the topic, overlaying either theoretical advancements and functional functions.

Analysis of Social Media and Ubiquitous Data: International Workshops MSM 2010, Toronto, Canada, June 13, 2010, and MUSE 2010, Barcelona, Spain, September 20, 2010, Revised Selected Papers

This e-book constitutes the joint completely refereed post-proceedings of The Modeling Social Media Workshop, MSM 2010 held in Toronto, Canada in June 2010 and the overseas Workshop on Mining Ubiquitous and Social Environments, MUSE 2010, held in Barcelona, Spain in September 2010. The 8 revised complete papers integrated have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen after rounds of reviewing and revision.

Non-Linear Finite Element Analysis of Solids and Structures, Second Edition

Equipped upon the 2 unique books by way of Mike Crisfield and their very own lecture notes, well known scientist Rene de Borst and his staff provide a completely up-to-date but condensed version that keeps and builds upon the wonderful recognition and charm among scholars and engineers alike for which Crisfield's first version is acclaimed.

That component of the energy which is transmitted across the upper and lower interfaces is available within the volume to change the physical and electrical characteristics, which then cause changes in the flux proportions being reflected, transmitted or absorbed. This feedback mechanism creates a fundamental link between the physical properties of the marine cryosphere and the nature of electromagnetic interaction with the physical and electrical properties of the interface. In this chapter we present three sections through which we document our current understanding of how synthetic aperture radar (SAR) may be used in estimating components of the surface energy balance within the marine cryosphere.
