Paper Abstract

Polarization in terrestrial remote sensing has reached the operational phase with the implementation of an experiment aboard the Space Shuttle. The system requirements for a polarimetric analyzing system are discussed and the rationale for polarization measurements is developed. Polarization is a sensitive indicator of cloud particle size distribution, soil texture. atmospheric aerosols/haze. and sea state. Focal plane arrays are ideally suited for focal plane measurements.
