Employing the model of a layer of continuous random medium with an underlying rough surface, the bistatic scattering and backscattering coefficients are calculated. By using the reciprocity, the emissivity is then calculated. Numerical results simulate the temporal variations of complementary backscattering and emissivity of the vegetation canopies. Theoretical results are compared with the measurements of active and passive remote sensing of several vegetation canopies. The correlated characteristics of microwave active and passive remote sensing are discussed
