Creation and development of the methodology of microwave radiometry for hydrometeorological and oceanological investigations

Melentyev V.V.

Multy-spectral passive microwave sensors are placed at present practically in each satellite that realizes the geoecological investigations of the Earth. The paper describes the history of creation of the remote sensing methodology in microwaves from the beginning when the theoretical justification of the possibility revealing of the parameters of the system “Earth–atmosphere” was done in 1960-s by professor Kusiel Schifrin – the leading scientist of the Voeikov Main Geophysical Observatory till nova days when different dangerous and ecologically significant parameters of the land and seas could be retrieved by using satellite microwave survey
