A passive/active L/S-band (PALS) microwave aircraft instrument to measure ocean salinity and soil moisture has been built and tested. Because the L-band brightness temperatures associated with salinity changes are expected to be small, it was necessary to build a very sensitive and stable system. This new instrument has dual-frequency, dual polarization(More)
The Jason Microwave Radiometer is calibrated using hot and cold on-Earth theoretical brightness temperature references. The retrieved path delay values are validated using co-located Topex Microwave Radiometer and radiosonde values. The calibrated path delay values are demonstrated to have no significant bias or scale errors. The absolute accuracy of the(More)
