ABSTRACT Rough surface scattering effects are important problem for solving emission in microwave remote sensing. Stochastically the surface length should be infinite to simulate random rough surface scattering which is possible for analytical method but not for numerical method. Generally there are two approximations to simulate real life: the tapered wave method and periodic boundary condition. Both are valid for random rough surface scattering if convergence is shown with increase of surface length for the tapered wave and if the period is large enough for periodic boundary condition. In this paper we compare the results for the four Stokes parameters between periodic boundary conditions and the tapered wave approach.

    ABSTRACT: An experiment in which the third Stokes parameter thermal emission from a periodic water surface was measured is documented. This parameter is shown to be related to the direction of periodicity of the periodic surface and to approach brightnesses of up to 30 K at X-band for the surface used in the experiment. The surface actually analyzed was a “two-layer” periodic surface; the theory of thermal emission from such a surface is derived and the theoretical results are found to be in good agreement with the experimental measurements. These results further the idea of using the third Stokes parameter emission as an indicator of wind direction over the ocean

    ABSTRACT: The thermal emission of nonspherical particles is studied by applying the fluctuation dissipation theorem to calculate the Stokes' vector source terms in radiative transfer theory. Generally, all the four Stokes' parameters in the source term are nonzero and are proportional to the absorption coefficient in the backward direction. The measurements of active and passive remote sensing are related by showing that within the framework of radiative transfer theory, the emissivity of vertically and horizontally polarized waves can be expressed in terms of the bistatic scattering coefficients in the usual manner. In addition, the emissions of the third and fourth Stokes' parameters are also expressed in terms of bistatic scattering coefficients.
