Summary, etc.:
The two CD set is a useful compilation of PowerPoint lectures on all aspects of the algorithms used to process and interpret remote sensing data acquired from the Terra satellite. Lectures include an introduction of single scattering, multiple scattering, absorption and scattering properties of the Earth's atmosphere and land surface, remote sensing techniques, and satellite orbits. Following an overview of the Terra mission, there are numerous lectures that describe the analysis and results of MODIS, CERES, MISR, ASTER, and MOPITT onboard the Terra satellite. The two CD set includes all PowerPoint lectures (one CD) and the many movies and animations that are linked to these lectures to illustrate the physical principles as well as the many results of the application of these techniques to real data (second CD). There is also one IDL script for simulating the bidirectional reflectance function of vegetation by varying selected parameters of an analytic model.
