Science for Everyone – Satellite and Typhoon – Eye to Eye

We now come Satellite and Typhoon – Eye To Eye by S. Baibakov and A. Martynov in the Science for Everyone Series. I did not know the existence about this book till some Anonymous person reported about it in the Science for Everyone post.

The back cover of the book says:

Studies of typhoons and hurricanes based on conventional tracking technologies ground weather stations, ships aircraft, and weather rockets rarely turn out to be effective enough, since the time and place of typhoon origin are unpredictable. A new avenue of approach to the problem is opening up with advances in space technology. This book presents a detailed method to explore in, typhoons and hurricanes using satellites and satellite probes to deliver balloons with a payload of measuring instruments into their effective range. There is also an extensive discussion of problem areas in meteorology, oceanography, and environmental science capable of being addressed by space-borne technologies. The book is intended for those interested in astronautics, oceanography and in the protection of the environment.

The book was translated from the Russian by Anatoli Rosenzweig and was first published by Mir in 1986.
