Strong absorptions due to atmospheric oxygen near 60 GHz provide the means for remote sensing of atmospheric temperature fluctuations that may indicate the presence of disturbances such as high-altitude clear-air turbulence, aircraft wake turbulence, and severe weather. These emissions may be polarized due to the presence of aerosols or possibly some other undetermined cause. This paper describes a radiometer that will remotely sense temperature fluctuations as well as their polarization signatures.
