Paper Abstract

This report deals with geology-geophysical investigations of the Earth surface by means of aerospace remote sensing, especially by methods using polarization parameters of the light. The possibility to detect sources of ionizing radiation, spreading on the Earth surface and containing any kind of emitted particles (or their combinations), by means of a special technique is shown. Physical argumentation of ionizing radiation influence on parameters of the upper soil layer and certain quantitative approximations are considered. The opportunities to detect the influence of the discussed sources by means of remote optical polarization mapping of soils are demonstrated. This technique could be used in a survey of the bare soil, i.e., the soil without vegetation.
