  Physical approaches in microwave remote sensing to measure non-spherical frozen hydrometeors are frequently parameterized as spherical particles, assuming either dielectric mixing approximation or equivalent spheres, to make Mie-theory by: 1.   The microwave region of the EM spectrum represents a principal atmospheric window that can be employed to overcome the above limitations in optical remote sensing. For instance, in view of their much longer wavelengths and contrary to optical sensors, microwaves can easily penetrate through vegetation canopies and even dry by: 1. Dr. Y. S. Rao is a Professor at the Centre of Studies in Resources Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India. He is working in the field of microwave remote sensing and land based applications for more than 34 years. His early research was focused on the use of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) interferometry for landslides and land deformation monitoring, Digital Fields: Remote sensing.   Stamnes began his career in upper atmospheric physics, and has since specialized in atmospheric radiation, remote sensing, and climate-related studies. He has published more than research papers, and is the co-author of Radiative Transfer in the Atmosphere and Ocean (Cambridge University Press, ).

The short wavelengths of microwaves allow omnidirectional antennas for portable devices to be made very small, from 1 to 20 centimeters long, so microwave frequencies are widely used for wireless devices such as cell phones, cordless phones, and wireless LANs (Wi-Fi) access for laptops, and Bluetooth earphones. Antennas used include short whip antennas, rubber ducky antennas, sleeve dipoles. Atmosphere Remote Sensing solicits research papers presenting the development of remote sensing instruments, techniques and retrieval algorithms, their validation and evaluation, and in particular, the application of remote sensing data and techniques in studies leading to a better understanding of atmospheric processes. 1.

Electromagnetic radiation in the microwave wavelength region is used in remote sensing to provide useful information about the Earth's atmosphere, land and ocean. A microwave radiometer is a passive device which records the natural microwave emission from the earth.

It can be used to measure the total water content of the atmosphere within its field of view.

Applications of passive microwave remote sensing include meteorology, hydrology, and oceanography. By looking "at", or "through" the atmosphere, depending on the wavelength, meteorologists can use passive microwaves to measure atmospheric profiles and to determine water and ozone content in the atmosphere.
