A Composite Model for Estimation of Polarimetric Thermal Emission from Foam-Covered Wind-Driven Ocean Surface
By
, Vol. 37, 143-190, 2002
Abstract
This paper presents theoretical studies of polarimetric thermal emission from foam-covered ocean surface based on a composite volume and rough surface scattering model using the radiative transfer theory. The sea foam is modeled as a layer containing randomly distributed thin-film water bubbles. The small perturbation method (SPM) is used for random rough ocean surface, where the bistatic scattering is calculated up to the second order. The radiative transfer equations with a rough interface are solved using an iterative technique. Model predictions are compared with empirical expressions for foam emissivity and with the WINDRAD measurement data.
