Passive microwave radiometer data over the ocean have been widely used, but data near coastlines or over lakes often cannot be used because of the large footprint with mixed signals from both land and water. For example, current standard Special Sensor Microwave Imager (SSM/I) products, including wind, water vapor, and precipitation , are typically(More)
—We develop methods of using boreal, temperate, and tropical forests as vicarious calibration sites for spaceborne microwave radiometers. The extended sites and improved calibration techniques enable examining warm-scene performances as a complement to cold scenes over the ocean, providing information about scan-dependent biases, detecting and correcting(More)
