Two techniques for deriving low-altitude temperature profiles were evaluated in an experiment conducted from November 1996 to January 1997 at the Boulder Atmospheric Observatory (BAO). The first used a scanning, single wavelength, 5-mm (60 GHz) microwave radiometer to measure vertical temperature profiles. Two radi-ometers were operated simultaneously; one(More)
~300 MHz subbands, incorporated into the PSR/CX instrument, have provided one means of interference mitigation that is useful under moderately contaminated conditions. ETL has developed a new C-band spectrometer that observes emissions within relatively narrower bandwidths and is tunable from 5.8 to 7.5 GHz. The spectrometer is able to reduce the effects of(More)
Observations of tsunamis in the open ocean are critical for developing early warning systems and improving our understanding of tsunami generation and propagation. An early and reliable assessment of an imminent tsunami threat requires detection of the tsunami wave in the open ocean away from the shore [1-3]. The wave amplitude of tsunamis in the open(More)
—A consistent radiometric model of the ocean is an important part of the interpretation of passive microwave ra-diometric data. Empirical relations between measured brightness temperature and environmental parameters such as wind, surface temperature, salinity, etc., are often used for processing satellite and airborne data. There are some difficulties when(More)
