In recent decades, with the development of low-frequency missions such as SMOS and Aquarius, which have a large antenna, the need has arisen to find stable areas for the external calibration of L-band radiometers. “Cold sky” and “calm ocean” are routinely used as low reference temperatures, and Antarctica, in particular the East Antarctic Plateau, has been investigated in recent years as a potential candidate for higher reference temperatures. The reason for this interest lies in its… CONTINUE READING
