Evaluating an Improved Parameterization of the Soil Emission in L-MEB
TLDR
In the forward model [L-band microwave emission of the biosphere (L-MEB)] used in the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity level-2 retrieval algorithm, modeling of the roughness effects is based on a simple semiempirical approach using three main “roughness” model parameters: HR, QR, and NR. Expand

Effect of Salinity on the Dielectric Properties of Geological Materials: Implication for Soil Moisture Detection by Means of Radar Remote Sensing
TLDR
We present simulated and experimental study in order to assess the effect of salinity on the complex permittivity of geological materials and, therefore, on the radar backscattering coefficient in the [1-7 GHz] frequency range. Expand

Evaluating the Semiempirical $H$– $Q$ Model Used to Calculate the L-Band Emissivity of a Rough Bare Soil
TLDR
A numerical modeling approach was used to evaluate the semiempirical H-Q model used in the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity retrieval algorithm to account for roughness effects over bare soil. Expand

Temperature- and Texture-Dependent Dielectric Model for Moist Soils at 1.4 GHz
TLDR
In this letter, a monofrequent dielectric model for moist soils taking into account dependences on the temperature and texture is proposed, in the case of an electromagnetic frequency equal to 1.4 GHz. Expand
