"The emergence of microwave technology in the field of remote sensing creates a need to understand the mechanisms of radio propagation and the interaction between waves and surrounding media. Radio Propagation and Remote Sensing of the Environment describes the processes of radio propagation and analyzes the problems that enable estimation of media." "The book begins by exploring propagation processes and related phenomena including absorption, refraction, reflection, reflection, and scattering. This discussion demonstrates the relationship between radiowave parameters of amplitude, phrase, frequency, and polarization and media characteristics such as permittivity and shape. The volume presents equations that enable the estimation of the strength of various effects, as well as the detection of these effects against a background of various masking phenomena."--Jacket.
