The weather satellite is a type of satellite that is primarily used to monitor the weather and climate of the ites can be polar orbiting, covering the entire Earth asynchronously, or geostationary, hovering over the same spot on the equator. Meteorological satellites see more than clouds: city lights, fires, effects of pollution, Meteorological satellites.

book, sand and dust storms, snow cover. Meteorological satellites also provide good estimates of surface temperatures as illustrated from a summertime mid-afternoon sampling acquired overkm 2 (Fig. ).Variation across the scene illustrates the effects of variable aerodynamic mixing and evapotranspiration from surfaces with differing cover of vegetation.

At last, a book that has what every atmospheric science and meteorology student should know about satellite meteorology: the orbits of satellites, the instruments they carry, the radiation they detect, and, most importantly, the fundamental atmospheric data.
