Abstract
As a proof of concept, the Seasat oceanographic satellite successfully demonstrated the role of microwave sensors to synoptically measure geophysical parameters of interest to the oceanographic and meteorological communities. Nevertheless, problems surfaced, which can be corrected by improved system design concepts. Indeed, the next generation of satellite systems will incorporate modest engineering improvement which will greatly ease data reduction problems. Of more importance; however, the Seasat activity has generated ideas for new classes of measurements for the future. This paper explores a possible long term system growth in microwave scatterometry and radiometry.
