A likelihood of disastrous global environmental consequences has been surmised as a result of projected increases in anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. These estimates are based on computer climate modeling, a branch of science still in its infancy despite recent substantial strides in knowledge. Because the expected anthropogenic climate forcings are(More)
Combined use of remote sensing in the visible, infrared and microwave spectral regions, direct in situ measurements and model numerical experiments makes it possible to study inland water bodies as elements of water body-catchment-atmosphere-systems with good spatial and temporal resolution. In this paper examples are presented of the remote sensing methods(More)
The visual observations of the Earth carried out by the cosmonauts produced voluminous data on the colorimetry of the planet and the optical structure of the horizon, and made it possible to follow such phenomena as the aurora and noctilucent clouds. Still more interesting results were obtained from spectrophotometric measurements of the brightness of the(More)
