Paper Abstract

The possibility of the atmosphere remote sensing by the radio signals is considered. The base of this approach is contained in the solution of the inverse problem for the electromagnetic wave propagation from the point stationary or non stationary source in the spherical layered atmosphere. The inverse problem procedure is found by the imbedding method. This procedure have been developed earlier for many dimension media and have been adapted in this work for media with spherical symmetry. The procedure allows to restore the height profiles of the atmosphere refraction index by the measuring of the spatial time or spatial frequency distribution of the field. The cases of the impulse and monochro- matic sources and the method of the date obtaining are discussed. The proposal remote sensing may be realised by two satellites moving relatively each other. One of them transmits down and simultane- ously other receives the radio signals which are reflected by the tested area of atmosphere. The various polarisations of the source and the inversion of the atmosphere dissipation are discussed.
