Because of the recognized value of these measurements and because techniques are ever improving, several nations plan further radar missions to observe the land surface. Many more airborne radar remote sensing instruments have been developed to conduct studies on a regional scale, or as platforms for demonstrating future spaceborne techniques. Active microwave remote sensing has proven valuable across a number of science disciplines and practical applications, including geology, urban planning, agriculture and crop management, forestry and biomass assessment, hydrology and water resource management, weather forecasting, generation of topographic maps, sea ice mapping and glacier studies, earthquake and volcano studies, archaeological investigations, and post-disaster assessment.

Active and Passive Microwave Remote Sensing
Remote sensors operating in the microwave region of the electromagnetic EM spectrum can be grouped into two basic categories: 1 Sensors that transmit microwaves and measure the energy of the returned signal, and 2 sensors that measure energy from microwaves emitted from observed targets. The former systems are referred to as active, the latter as passive microwave sensors. Active sensors are based on radio detection and ranging RADAR 2 technology and can be distinguished into imaging radars, altimeters, and scatterometers Elachi Passive sensors work conceptually similarly to optical thermal sensors and are generally referred to as radiometers or microwave scanners.

Atmosphere 1. Active remote sensors create their own electromagnetic energy that: 1. Although radar systems now use microwave wavelength energy almost exclusively instead of radio wave, the acronym was never changed. Radar is capable of detecting frequency and polarization shifts. Because the sensor transmitted a signal of known wavelength, it is possible to compare the received signal with the transmitted signal.

Microwave Indices from Active and Passive Sensors for Remote Sensing Applications
There are two main types of sensors used in remote sensing technology, active sensors and passive sensors. Difference between these two is quite small, however, leaves great impact on their functionality. As we learnt in primary school, sun constantly emits light energy and is only source of natural light for earth. Moreover, this energy is not observed by any component in solar system.
