1 October 1990 Optimal processing polarization signals for remote sensing: theory and experiment
Author Affiliations +
Different experiments on remote sensing the environment by methods of active radiolocation showed that there arises a necessity for optimal processing received reflected signals. To illustrate this idea we shall give a part of experimental resuits received in sensing different meteorological objects by electromagnetic waves of mm length range of waves. The experiments were aimed at determining statistic characteristics of radiowaves reflected from different meteorological objects. At the same time changes in different polarization parameters of reflected electromagnetic wave (EMW) were investigated. The geometric parameters of reflected EMW polarization ellipsis, i.e. orientation angle of EMW polarization plane and 2 elliptic angle were chosen as polarization parameters to be determined. However, within the framework it was stated that elliptical angle of reflected EMW as well as its variations are close to zero.
