Paper Abstract

In this paper the structure and operational peculiarities of reconstructed, Ka-band, combined scatterometer-radiometer system are discussed. The developed system is suitable for spatio-temporally collocated, high precise measurements of the absolute values of water surface, snow, bare and vegetated soils microwave reflective (radar backscattering coefficient) and emissive (brightness temperature) characteristics at ~37GHz, under test-control laboratory conditions from low altitude measuring platforms.
