Remote Sensing of Ocean and Coastal Environments advances the scientific understanding and application of technologies to address a variety of areas related to sustainable development, including environmental systems analysis, environmental management, clean processes, green chemistry, green engineering. Through each contributed chapter, the book covers ocean remote sensing, ocean color monitoring, modeling biomass and carbon of oceanic ecosystems, sea surface temperature (SST) and sea surface salinity, ocean monitoring for oil spills and pollutions, coastal erosion and accretion measurement, Coastal Hazards, Climate change on Ocean and Coastal Environment.

Remote Sensing of Ocean and Coastal Environments is aimed at those with a common interest in oceanography techniques, sustainable development and other diverse backgrounds within earth and ocean sciences field. This book would be beneficial for the academician, scientists, environmentalists, meteorologists, environmental consultants and computing experts working in the areas of earth and ocean sciences.
