This volume offers Brian Whitehouse's very personal relation to the oceans. Under the influence of his Navy father and a Dalhousie University PhD in Oceanography, Whitehouse developed a keen interest in what was learned about the oceans during and following WWII, and the people who did the work. This was the era when remote sensing from satellites revolutionized the way we monitored the global oceans. Whitehouse’s first use of spaceborne sensors to solve coastal habitat issues occurred during this period. This experience was followed by ten years with the Alliance for Marine Remote Sensing.
The reader will find some topics of special interest.
