Preliminary performance simulation of microwave imager combined active/passive - a new instrument for Chinese salinity mission


A 1-D interferometric system at 1.4GHz, 6.9GHz, 18.7 GHz and 23.8GHz combined with a scatterometer at 1.26GHz, called microwave imager combined active/passive (MICAP), has been proposed to retrieve sea surface salinity (SSS) and to reduce geophysical errors due to surface roughness and sea surface temperature (SST). The MICAP will be a candidate payload… (More)
