Abstract
Passive microwave radiometers in the past have demerits of low spatial resolution, and of no lower frequencies. Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR) and AMSR-E have the largest antenna, and it enables adopting 6 and 10GHz. From those lower frequencies, sea surface temperature (SST) and soil moisture can be retrieved. SST retrieved from AMSR-E has a fine spatial resolution and good accuracy. It shows a potential application, such as tracing oceanic eddies in the Kuroshio Extension region.
