Abstract:

Kumar et al. (1999) present seasonally averaged 85 GHz horizontal polarization brightness temperature (Tb) maps of the Indian region, based on data from the passive microwave imager SSM/I onboard DMSP satellites. They describe spatial variations of observed T b during three different seasons. Their attempt to relate these variations, more or less directly, in terms of the 'physiographic' and 'geological' properties of the Indian landmass, and in terms of the influence of inflow of water from land to ocean, without properly accounting for atmospheric contributions, is misleading.
