    • Contribution to the application of near ground L-band radiometry 

      Burnham, Colin Jeffrey (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-07-16)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      ARIEL is an L-band radiometer adapted from Earth Observation satellite technology for use in terrestrial, near to ground surveys of moisture. The key technical benefits are compact size, lightweight, mobility and high pixel ...
    • Sea state effect on the sea surface emissivity at L-band 

      Miranda, J.; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Duffo Ubeda, Núria; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Etcheto, Jacqueline (IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 2003-10-31)
      Article
      Open Access
      In May 1999, the European Space Agency (ESA) selected the Earth Explorer Opportunity Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission to obtain global and frequent soil moisture and ocean salinity maps. SMOS' single payload ...
    • Soil moisture retrieval using an airborne L-Band Radiometer 

      Duperrier, Arnaud (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2009-02-27)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      This work project will be divided in 5 chapters. Firstly, chapter two reviews the basics of radiometry, emission theory and types of radiometer. Chapter three covers the avionic system in place aboard the platform, ...
    • Study of radio frequency interference effects on radiometry bands in urban environments 

      Forte Veliz, Giuseppe Francesco; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Tarongí Bauzá, José Miguel; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
      Conference report

      Microwave radiometers are very accurate passive sensors that have been successfully used in Earth remote sensing during the last decades. Microwave radiometers measure thermal noise, therefore any other signal (radio-frequency ...
    • The light airborne reflectometer for GNSS-R observations (LARGO) instrument: initial results from airborne and Rover field campaigns 

      Alonso Arroyo, Alberto; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Monerris Belda, Sandra; Rudiger, Christoph; Walker, Jeffrey; Forte Veliz, Giuseppe Francesco; Pascual Biosca, Daniel; Hyuk, Park; Onrubia Ibáñez, Raúl (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS)-Reflectometry (GNSS-R) has proved to be a useful technique for the estimation of Soil Moisture (SM). In the past 10 years, different techniques such as the Interference Pattern ...
