Microwave Radiometry of Vegetation Canopies (Advances in Global Change Research) by Alexander A. Chukhlantsev ISBN ISBN Hardcover; Dordrecht, Netherlands: Springer, June ; ISBN the microwave radiometry of the Earth’s surface in the presence of vegetation canopies seems to be useful and is the main objective of this book. The fundamental three-volume book by Ulaby, Moore, and Fung (), in which these questions were partially considered, was published a long ago. About this book Research into microwave radiation from the Earth's surface in the presence of vegetation canopies, as well as the development of algorithms for retrieval of soil and vegetation parameters from microwave radiometric measurements, have been actively conducted for the last thirty years by many scientific groups and organizations all over the world. Microwave Radiometry of Vegetation Canopies The capability of the microwave radiometric method to determine soil moisture and vegetation biometric indices was revealed a quarter of a century ago by the author and many of his colleagues.

A promising tool to monitor these processes is microwave radiometry. Microwave properties of tree canopies have been investigated for many years and a good overview over this research topic is. Abstract: A physical microwave radiometry model based on an iterative solution of the radiative transfer equations is developed for a vegetation canopy. The model generalizes the restrictions imposed by earlier models with regard to the canopy type, the canopy physical temperature profile, and the sky radiation, and it is successfully reduced to those reported in the literature. for Microwave Radiometry of Forest Canopies at L-Band Mehmet Kurum, Member, IEEE,,Fellow, IEEE, Peggy E. O’Neill, Senior Member, IEEE, Alicia T. Joseph, Thomas J. Jackson, Fellow, IEEE, and Michael H. Cosh Abstract—In this study, a first-order radiative transfer (RT) model is developed to more accurately account for vegetation. Microwave Attenuation Properties of Vegetation Canopies. Abstract: A major impediment to the understanding and modeling of propagation through and backscattering and emission from vegetation canopies has been the lack of canopy attenuation data as a function of frequency, incidence angle, and polarization configuration. This paper presents the results of attenuation experiments conducted for .
