Limitations of Remote Sensing, Part 2

March 16th, 2010 · No Comments

Click here listen to episode 687 of Weather Break.

Yesterday we started a discussion on Weather Break about the strengths and weaknesses of using remote sensing techniques in meteorology and the atmospheric sciences.  Remote sensing means that you are measuring or observing something without actually touching it.   In meteorology, radar and satellite data are the most common type of remote sensing.  Today on Weather Break, Dr. Jon Schrage of the Creighton University Department of Atmospheric Sciences talks about what remote sensing techniques can and cannot tell us about the atmosphere.


For more information about applications of remote sensing in meteorology, we recommend COMET, theSouth Dakota School of Mines and TechnologyNASANOAA, or Wikipedia.
