Introduction to Microwave Remote Sensing


This module covers basic microwave remote sensing with a focus on passive sensing, putting into perspective how microwave remote sensing complements visible and infrared observation. Example imagery is used to compare common microwave frequency channels and how they are interpreted, as well as introduce products that are possible with microwave observations.
