Estimation of Remote Sensing Characteristics of Salt Wet Soils at Decimeter Wavelengths

Yu. V. Goryshnya

Abstract


The numerically simulated effect of salinity of wet soils on their radar sensing characteristics in L- and P- bands are shown for the circular – also, for comparison, the linear horizontal – polarizations. The saline soil detection in active remote sensing in the L-band is shown to become imperfect due to the influence of a vertical profile of soil humidity distribution. The difference between L- and P-band scattering by wet soils and the applicability of active remote sensing techniques in the decimeter wavelengths for estimation of the soil salinity are discussed.
