Guest Editor(s): E. Westwater

Description:This special section, which grew out of the Specialist Meeting on Microwave Remote Sensing'01 that was held in Boulder, Colorado, in 2001, includes 42 papers that illustrated state-of-the-art international remote sensing techniques and applications using microwave radar and radiometry from space-, airborne-, and surface-based platforms. Topics discussed were radiometric and radar polarimetry; radar and radiometric calibration; advanced instrument techniques; satellite remote sensing of the land surface and vegetation; ground-based remote sensing of the atmosphere and ocean; satellite; radiometric/radar modeling of scattering emission, and radiative transfer, and special campaigns and field experiments.
