Microwave methods for the remote sensing of the atmosphere and of the earth's surface from satellites include: nadir sounding, limb sounding, radiometry for surface properties and for atmospheric liquid water and integrated water vapour, scatterometry, altimetry and synthetic aperture radar. The principles of these methods are described together with some possible future developments. -from Author
