Indoor Microwave Scattering Properties Measurement and Study of Soil
Microwave scattering properties study of soil is a very important microwave scattering mechanism element, it is the basis of the study on backscattering model for remote sensing and electromagnetic parameters inversion. The paper describes the principle, the buildup and the measurement process of the indoor microwave scattering measurement system first. Then we focus on the microwave scattering properties study of the soil, carrying out abundance measurements under different types of roughness, different water content, different polarizations and different angles of incidence. By comparing the measurement data with the model of AIEM, the system is proved to be of satisfactory performance and can get the scattering property of the measurement sample with high precision, which can lay a solid foundation for the deeper research on the mechanism of the microwave remote sensing of soil.
