Paper Abstract

In this paper a C-band (~5.6GHz), double channel, polarimetric, combined short-pulse scatterometer-radiometer system is described. The system was developed for short distance remote sensing application (from 6m up to 100m), from stationary fixed platforms or vessels. The minimum operational range for the scatterometer is 6m. This capacity allows study correlative features between microwave reflective and emission characteristics of the observed surfaces and medium under control-test laboratory conditions. Although the system was developed for polarimetric (vv, vh, hh, hv), simultaneous and spatially coincident microwave active-passive measurements of water surface, bare and vegetated soils and land snow cover parameters, it may be successfully used for atmospheric boundary layer remote survey too.
