A precise estimate of the polarization induced by the surface in reflected radiation is crucial for remote sensing applications dedicated to monitoring the atmosphere. Here we present airborne observations acquired during a field campaign in the North of France over vegetated surfaces. Polarized reflectances were measured in four spectral bands in the range(More)
Computations of the reflectivity, transmissivity, and efficiency properties for TE, TM, and T45 degrees waves of far ir beam splitters (BS) and of the polarizations induced at both reflection and transmission are described. Effects of variations in the state of polarization, orientation, pointing accuracy, and wavelength of the incident light, as well as(More)
