Ground-based microwave radiometer experiments were performed to investigate the effects of moisture, temperature, and roughness on microwave emission from bare soils. Measurements were made at frequencies of 0.6-0.9, 1.4, and 10.7 GHz using van-mounted radiometers to observe prepared soil sites in Kern County, CA. The sites were instrumented for monitoring soil characteristics and surface meteorological conditions. Brightness temperature variations of approximately 15 K at 1.4 GHz and 25 K at… CONTINUE READING
