Optimum Channel Combinations for Retrieval of Oceanic Winds Using a Radiometer

Thomas Mathew

Abstract: The most part of the earth is covered with water and so it becomes imperative to have a better knowledge about the oceanic winds so as to know/predict the climatic changes. There are several sensors but radiometer being a passive microwave sensor has its own advantages in the study of oceanic winds. The radiometer generally operates at various frequencies and the capacity to retrieve information increases with the usage of V and H polarizations of the frequency. This paper is an attempt to understand and check for the optimum channel combination (s) from amongst the frequencies being used by the radiometer, for the retrieval of oceanic winds.
