Abstract:

The research last year consisted of three parts A. Microwave emission and scattering of foam based on Monte Carlo simulations of dense media using the fcc structures and realistic Lord Kelvin s Tetrakaidecahedron Model of minimal contact area B. Polarimetric passive microwave remote sensing of wind vectors with foam-covered, rough ocean surfaces C. Brightness temperature of ocean with wind based on paralleled code of MoM with RWG basis function in conjunction with SMCG fast method.
