Radar backscatter measurements as a part of KUREX-91Radar backscatter measurements were performed by the University of Kansas Radar Systems and Remote Sensing Laboratory (RSL) from a helicopter as a part of KUREX-91. A radar operating at 4.3 GHz with HH polarization collected data at incidence angles from 20 to 50 deg. Data were from three flight lines consisting of agriculture and natural vegetation-covered soils. In addition to scatterometer measurements, detailed observations were made of the soil moisture and vegetation characteristics over selected sites along the flight lines. Some of the scatterometer measurements were performed to coincide with the Soviet Almaz satellite overpasses. Preliminary observations are presented.
