Introduction to microwave radiative transfer May By Peter Bauer European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts Abstract The following text gives a brief overview of microwave radiative transfer in atmospheres covering the principles of radiative transfer in an absorbing and scattering atmosphere including surface reflection and emission. This book combines theoretical concepts with experimental results on thermal microwave radiation to increase the understanding of the complex nature of terrestrial media. With the emphasis on radiative transfer models, this book covers the urgent needs for the transition from the experimental phase of microwave remote sensing to operational applications. This book provides readers insight into the application of satellite microwave radiometric methods for the study of the system ocean-atmosphere (SOA) interaction. It discusses the influence of the horizontal heat transfer in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL), its temperature, humidity regime and energy exchange with the ocean surface as well. Radiative transfer theory has been recognized as the principal modeling method that accounts for radiation in the atmosphere, and it is also widely used for land-surface modeling (e.g., vegetation canopy, snow, and soil) (Liang, ). Generally, continuous vegetation is approximated by a horizontally homogeneous and vertically layered model.

Microwave radiation is used in electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR or ESR) spectroscopy, typically in the X-band region (~9 GHz) in conjunction typically with magnetic fields of T. This technique provides information on unpaired electrons in chemical systems, such as free radicals or transition metal ions such as Cu(II). Aimed at scientists using satellite microwave radiometry to study remote sensing of the heat and dynamic interaction between ocean and atmosphere, this text is a fully revised and expanded edition of the authors’ monograph "Intercorrelation between Natural Microwave Radiation of the Ocean-Atmosphere System and its Boundary Heat and Dynamic Interaction", previously .   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, ). A less obvious example is thermal radiation from the human body. Figure \(\PageIndex{1}\): In a fireplace, heat transfer occurs by all three methods: conduction, convection, and radiation. Radiation is responsible for most of the heat transferred into the room. Heat transfer also occurs through conduction into the room, but at a much slower rate.

  Microwave radiation is a type of electromagnetic prefix "micro-" in microwaves doesn't mean microwaves have micrometer wavelengths, but rather that microwaves have very small wavelengths compared with traditional radio waves (1 mm to , km wavelengths). In the electromagnetic spectrum, microwaves fall between infrared radiation and . This book combines theoretical concepts with experimental results on thermal microwave radiation to increase the understanding of the complex nature of terrestrial media. With the emphasis on radiative transfer models, this new book covers the urgent needs for the transition from the experimental phase of microwave remote sensing to operational applications. This third edition of Radio-Frequency and Microwave Radiation Guide provides the most current and authoritative information on the physical characteristics of radio-frequency radiation (RF) and microwave radiation, its interactions with matter, and biological and environmental effects. Current standards and guidelines are discussed, as are instruments and controls. Microwave Radiation of the Ocean-Atmosphere Boundary Heat and Dynamic Interaction. Influence of Horizontal Heat Transfer in the Atmosphere Boundary Layer on the Relationship Between the SOA’s Brightness Temperature and Surface Heat Fluxes: Modeling The book describes different approaches to the analysis of heat and dynamic processes.
