[ADP-vol116]

The volume is a collection of extended versions of the papers given at the Microwave Remote Sensing Symposium (IAMAP) of the XIX IUGG General Assembly, held in Vancouver, Canada, August 9-22, 1987. The papers deal with the theory of radiative transfer, with an intercomparison of three important forward models, and with applications to two major future space experiments – the Microwave Limb Sounder on Upper Air Research Satellite for trace gases monitoring in the middle atmosphere and the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit on the TIROS-NEXT US operational weather satellites.
