"Fundamentals of Remote Sensing and Application in Climate Research"
Remote sensing has been established as a valuable measurement method in environmental and climate research. With the help of sun or moon as the light source via the absorption spectroscopy a large number of trace gases in the atmosphere can be detected. Such measurements can also be performed in emission, measuring the radiation of the molecules in the atmosphere. Observations from satellites provide global datasets, and allow, besides the composition of the atmosphere, also to study the surface of the earth, e.g. the sea ice extent in the polar regions. During the talk the fundamentals of remote sensing will be explained, and current examples of our work will be presented.
