What evidence is there that remote-sensing data contained in the various archives might actually contain proof of, first, global change and, second, the existence of human influence in any such change?
This book considers the role that archived data from remote sensing satellites can play in providing evidence of climate change on Earth. The types of data that can be identified and analysed are: mean sea surface temperature; increasing desertification; the depletion of stratospheric ozone, changing rainfall patterns; changing cloud cover and changes in areas covered by ice and snow. Not only does the book discuss the potential value of such data, it also addresses the need for rigorous calibration.
