This book is a reprint of the Special Issue Satellite Data Application, Validation and Calibration for Atmospheric Observation that was published in

Environmental & Earth Sciences

This Special Issue focuses on the calibration/validation (cal/val) of advanced passive sensors (IR and/or MW) essential for Earth (atmospheric/oceanic) observation onboard both operational and experimental environmental satellites. Featured topics range from sensor (SDR) calibration and algorithm/retrieval (EDR) validation, to the subsequent improvements, impacts and applications of derived products.
