    Radiometers Natural radio emission from the cosmic microwave background, discrete astronomical sources, the Earth's atmosphere, and the ground is random noise that is nearly indistinguishable from the noise generated by a warm resistor or by receiver electronics. Abstract: Microwave radiometers measure natural thermal emission in the microwave portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, with most instruments operating in the range from GHz. These instruments provide information on thermodynamic and constituent makeup of an observed volume.

The quantity B f is the so-called brightness (formerly radiation intensity), given in units of watts per steradian and hertz, which is the observed radiation power related to an infinitesimal segment of solid angle and an infinitesimal increment of bandwidth. The quantities T and f are the physical temperature in kelvins and the frequency in hertz; c ≈ 3 × 10 8 m/s is the speed of light and.

The Microwave Temperature Profiler (MTP) is a passive microwave radiometer, which measures the natural thermal emission from oxygen molecules in the earth’s atmosphere for a selection of elevation angles between zenith and nadir.

The current observing frequencies areand GHz. Since Micowave Sounding Units (MSU) measure radiation emitted by the earth's atmosphere from NOAA polar orbiting satellites. The different channels of the MSU measure different frequencies of radiation proportional to the temperature of broad vertical layers of the atmosphere.
