This book contains a selection of refereed papers presented at the 6 Specialist Meeting on Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Environment held in Florence, Italy on March 15-18, 1999. Over the last two decades, passive microwave remote sensing has made considerable progress, and has achieved significant results in the study of the Earth's surface and atmosphere. Many years of observations with ground-based and satellite-borne sensors have made an important contribution to improving our knowledge of many geophysical processes of the Earth's environment and of global changes. The evolution in microwave radiometers aboard satellites has increased steadily over recent years. At the same time, many investigations have been carried out both to improve the algorithms for the retrieval of geophysical parameters and to develop new technologies. The book is divided into four main sections: three of these are devoted to the observation of the Earth's surface and atmosphere, and the fourth, to future missions and new technologies. The first section deals with the study of sea and land surfaces, and reports recent advances in remote sensing of ocean wind, sea ice, soil moisture and vegetation biomass, including electromagnetic modelling and the assimilation of radiometric data in models of land surface processes. The following two sections are devoted to the measurement of atmospheric quantities which are of fundamental importance in climatology and meteorology, and, since they influence radio-wave propagation, they also impact on several other fields, including geodesy, navigational satellite and radioastronomy. The last section presents an overview of new technologies and plans for future missions.

Recent advances in theory and observations using passive microwave remote sensing have hightlighted the potential of spaceborne sensors for contributing to the required land surface measurements of soils, vegetation, snow cover and precipitation. Furthermore, the spatial resolution of passive microwave observations matches the special scales of large-scale models of land-atmosphere interactions both for data assimilation and validation. In order to stimulate and focus this research a workshop, sponsored by ESA and NASA, was organized to review the state-of-the-art in microwave radiometry related to land applications and to exchange ideas leading into new directions for future research. This volume contains the refereed papers from the aforementioned ESA/NASA workshop, which are arranged by topic, as well as the (edited) working group reports.

CLIMATE AND OCEANS: INTRODUCTION The role of the oceans in climate locally has been known for a long time. The warming and cooling of land masses close to the oceans is controlled in part by the ocean temperature since the high heat capacity of water dampens the seasonal changes in heating by sunlight received by adjacent continental areas as a function of the seasons. In lower latitudes the oceans dominate the air temperature of islands giving rise to the description of the climate on these islands as ‘‘maritime climates.’’ These effects globally are more extensive than these two elementary examples. Ocean currents and atmospheric circulation over the oceans cause a variety of interactions such as the ENSO (El Nin˜ o Southern Oscillation) process and Gulf Stream transport of heat northward in the Atlantic Ocean–atmosphere interactions are thus an important part of the local as well as the global climate regime as a function of seasons and location. The role of the cryosphere in influencing climate and in turn being influenced by climate is an important part of the ocean-climate relationship, especially as we seek to understand the role of potentially increasing global warming as a result of the enhancement, by human actions, of radiatively important gases, such as carbon dioxide, and aerosols. The oceans play an important role in deciphering the history of climate change over the past several million years, during the ice ages, as well as over the past hundreds of million years. The source of our information comes from deep sea cores. There the changing ocean proxies for climate changes are preserved in the sedimentary components. The study of the distribution of the remains of marine tests provide not only evidence of ecological changes with time including temperature, but marine tests also provide the material for detailed studies of oxygen isotope variations, sensitive indicators of temperature and continental ice storage typical of the ice ages. The chemistry of these tests and other recorders of past ocean environments, such as coral reefs, provide many other proxies including element ratios and isotopic indicators of environment. Properly dated cores allow the calibration of patterns of variation as a function of time and associated climate indicators. The role of orbital forcing in controlling climate has been indicated by detailed studies of hundreds of cores raised by standard piston coring techniques and more recently by ocean drilling. The coupling of the knowledge of contemporary ocean-climate relationships to the ancient record allows for a reconstruction of ancient locations of critical currents. In addition the influence of land mass and elevation on controlling ancient ocean-climate relationships has been inferred from these records. Karl K. Turekian Editor
