Global warming induced by atmospheric CO2 has attracted increasing attention of researchers all over the world. Although space-based technology provides the ability to map atmospheric CO2 globally, the number of valid CO2 measurements is generally limited for certain instruments owing to the presence of clouds, which in turn constrain the studies of global(More)
Water vapor under cloud cover area was retrieved with the combination of AMSR-E Brightness temperature and MODIS atmospheric profile. In order to retrieve water vapor, surface emissivity in clear sky was first estimated using AMSR-E brightness temperature, MODIS atmospheric profiles product and 1-Dimension Microwave Radiative Transfer Model (1DMRTM). And(More)
Due to the difficulty in accurately interpreting surface emissivity spectra, problems remain in the application of passive microwave satellite observations over land surfaces. This study develops a parameterized soil surface emissivity model to quantify the microwave emissivity accurately and rapidly for Gaussian-correlated rough surfaces. We first analyze(More)

Snow water equivalent (SWE) is a key parameter in the Earth's energy budget and water cycle. It has been demonstrated that SWE can be retrieved using active microwave remote sensing from space. This necessitates the development of forward models that are capable of simulating the interactions of microwaves and the snow medium. Several proposed models have(More)
