Summary
"The study and measurement of spatio-temporal characteristics of wave breaking and sea foam formations are of fundamental importance in ocean remote sensing. Breaking Ocean Waves is the first comprehensive description of the physical findings from investigations into these characteristics by optical and microwave remote sensing." "Much emphasis is placed on the physical aspects of the breaking processes required to measure the possibilities and limitations of remote sensing methods in specific observations of an oceanic surface. The highly significant contribution of various types of foam formations to the mean, and the spatio-temporal variations of radio emission, back-scattering, IR and optical parameters of the disturbed sea surface are analysed and discussed. Numerous illustrations are provided from air-borne, ship-borne and up-to-date laboratory experiments, as well as the practical applications arising from these activities."--Jacket
