Adaptation of a Ku-band microwave scatterometer for polarimetry measurements of crop canopy

Abstract

The adaptation to a polarimeter of a dual polarized, Ku-band, continuous wave, frequency modulated, microwave scatterometer is described. Polarimetry measurements for a field of hard red spring wheat show that the polarized component of the backscattered radiation differs only slightly from the polarization of the illuminating radiation but that the… (More)
