Paper Abstract

In this paper the results of simultaneous and spatially coincident, multi-frequency, polarimetric, spatio-temporally collocated measurements of waved pool water surface microwave reflective (radar backscattering coefficient) and emissive (brightness temperature) characteristics angular dependences at 5.6GHz, 15GHz and 37GHz are presented. Angular measurements were carried out for various water surface roughness parameters at clear air, cloudy and rain conditions. For these measurements C-, Ku and Ka-band, polarimetric, combined scatterometric-radiometric systems were used, set jointly on a mobile buggy moving along the measuring platform. Structures, operational features and the main technical characteristics of the utilized systems are presented too. The paper has an aim as well to attract attention of interested researchers and to invite them to perform their own or joint researches using available devices and facilities.
