This paper describes the deployment of a fully polarimetric K-band radiometer in the Rough Evaporation Duct (RED) experiment, which was conducted during August and September of 2001. The calibration of the four Stokes parameters is described, along with a comparison of the measurements with results of both the Klein-Swift and Ellison et al. sea surface dielectric models. The purpose of the experiment was to improve physical forward models of the ocean surface emission in order to improve wind vector retrieval algorithms.
