Microwave Radiometry: Theory and Applications

Talk by Prasad Gogineni, visiting professor at Centre for Ice and Climate.

Abstract
Passive microwave sensors are being used to support a wide range of operational and scientific applications. Satellite passive microwave sensors are being used for measuring Ocean winds and salinity, monitoring sea ice concentration and extent, mapping melt extent and snow accumulation on ice sheets, measurement of soil moisture, and characterizing the atmosphere. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a brief introduction to the principle of operation of passive  microwave sensors and their use over polar regions.
