The third Stokes parameter will soon be observed from space for the first time at L-band by SMOS and Aquarius [Martin-Neira et al, 2002; Le Vine et al, 2007]. The correlation between polarizations (i.e. third Stokes parameter) is of interest at L-band to measure Faraday rotation (Yueh, 2000) and also to indicate novel features of the surface. However, in(More)
Popular Summary Faraday rotation is a change in the polarization vector of electromagnetic radiation that occurs as the waves propagate from the Earth surface through the ionosphere to a spaceborne sensor. This change can cause errors in monitoring parameters at the surface such as soil moisture and sea surface salinity and it is an important consideration(More)
