Paper Abstract

In this paper the results of spatio-temporally collocated polarization measurements of snow and bare soil (covered by old and dry lying stems of wheat and weed) microwave reflective (radar backscattering coefficient) and emissive (brightness temperature) characteristics angular dependences at ~37GHz are presented. As well as a structure and operational features of utilized Ka-band, multi-polarization, combined scatterometer-radiometer system, measuring and calibration facilities are discussed.
