The second edition of this popular textbook includes relativistic electrodynamics, meteor astronomy, and more new topics. The author also expands on electromagnetic theory for remote sensing. The work of pioneer investigators has been elaborated, with respect to the identity of light waves and electromagnetic waves, so that the fundamental laws of optics can be derived from electromagnetic considerations. Furthermore, propagation through longer and longer distances has been extended.
