Abstract
Passive remote sensing of the Earth surface and of its atmosphere must be strongly protected from commercial and military man made active microwave emissions. That need an urgent effort from the international community of passive microwave users and scientists to detail clearly their needs and very carefully justify their choices. This paper describes the current situation and proposes an action to progress urgently in the way of creating a reference document for justify the Earth remote sensing needs using passive microwaves.
