Paper Abstract

In this paper we show the results related with the possibility of measure the electrophysical properties of Oceans with foam by using the passive remote sensing system. To solve the problems of remote sensing of different surfaces based in the use of the radiometers, it is necessary to establish multiparametric measurements. By using of multichanel radiometers, we can receive signs of different frequency, polarizations, directions. The algorithms of processing of thermal radiation used in terrestrial surfaces are also shown. These algorithms have been synthesized base on the maximum verisimilitude criteria. The algorithms include the operations of statistical processing of characteristic thermal radiation in order to receive the statistical characteristics of the electrophysical parameters of the Ocean. To reach it regressive model of the Ocean with foam, is analyzed in an temperature interval of 273-310 K, with different percent of salts and to different wind velocities. We analyzed the polarization type, monitoring angles, height of the antenna in order to the errors of measurements be minimum. These recommendations can be useful for planning aerospace experiments for studding the Ocean. This information can be obtained by using the inverse elements of the Fisher matrix.
