Abstmct-NmbusISMMR 6.6 GHz data were used together with an extensive data base of surface moisture to study the influence of polarization on radiative transfer characteristics of savannah vegetation in south-eastern Botswana. Ratios of vertical and horizontal polarization optical depths and ratios of albedos were found to be almost constant throughout a threeyear period. This conclusion led to a new approach to eliminate the vegetation components in the remotely sensed brightness temperatures… CONTINUE READING
