USEFULNESS OF IMAGING PASSIVE MICROWAVE FOR RURAL AND URBAN TERRAIN ANALYSIS

In-depth ground truth data has been collected in conjunction with four microwave radiometer (MICRAD) flights. Images were evaluated to determine their information content in studies of the cities of Lost Hills, Coalinga and Bakerfield, California. Results indicate that passive microwave radiometers can yield accurate information for general land use maps. In addition, the agricultural landscapes around Lost Hills and Coalinga were imaged.
