Extraterrestrial Remote Sensing and Climate Change

Thought provoking treatise that aims to answer questions about Earth's environment based on research done through remote sensing techniques

In Extraterrestrial Remote Sensing and Climate Change, the author addresses longstanding questions about a possible correlation between fluctuations in solar activity and changes in the Earth's atmosphere and geosphere that have been observed during periods of extraterrestrial changes such as solar eclipses or solar storms. The author goes on to suggest possible mechanisms for anomalies seen in climate change and other environmental effects through a deep examination of interdisciplinary research.

Core topics covered in the work include:

  • Data from ground-based detectors and from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) satellite, which monitor solar activity
  • Key variables associated with sunspot eruption, such as electron flux, proton flux, X-ray flux, and planetary indices
  • Observable changes in other planets and their moons, as well as in cosmic radiation from beyond the sun
  • Extraterrestrial effects on the Earth's magnetic field and on seismic activity

With its fresh and multidisciplinary approach, Extraterrestrial Remote Sensing and Climate Change is a thought-provoking treatise for students, researchers, and professionals in the fields of environmental science and climate science.
