    The European Space Agency (ESA) is conducting a feasibility study on MIRAS, a Microwave Imaging Radiometer using two dimensional aperture synthesis, for the mapping of soil moisture and ocean salinity from space. An aircraft ...
  • Theoretical research on new concepts for the remote sensing of hydrometeors 

    Martín Neira, Manuel; Bará Temes, Francisco Javier; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Torres Torres, Francisco; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Gasparini, O; Arbulino, M V (1996)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    There is an interest for climatology and meteorology to map hydrometeors, and in particular precipitation, both over the entire globe and across large defined regions. To achieve this goal at the proper spatial and temporal ...
  • The WISE 2000 campaign: sea surface salinity and wind retrievals from L-band radiometry 

    Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Font Ferré, Jordi; Etcheto, Jacqueline; Duffo Ubeda, Núria; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Bará Temes, Francisco Javier; Torres Torres, Francisco; Wursteisen, Patrick; Martín Neira, Manuel (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2000)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Sea surface salinity (SSS) has been recognized as a key parameter in climatological studies. SSS can be measured by passive microwave remote sensing at L band, where the sensitivity of the brightness temperatures shows a ...
