PASSIVE MICROWAVE REMOTE SENSING OF SOIL MOISTURE

The paper summarizes the work accomplished in the Voyeykov Main Geophysical Observatory, U.S.S.R., on passive microwave remote sensing of soil moisture. The theory and calculations of microwave emission from the medium with depth-dependent physical properties are discussed; the possibility of determining vertical profiles of temperature and humidity is considered; laboratory and aircraft measurements of soil moisture are described; the technique for determining the productive-moisture content in soil, and the results of aircraft measurements are given.
