The 15th Specialist Meeting on Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Environment (MicroRad 2018) will take place March 27-30, 2018, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Cambridge, MA.

MicroRad is a unique gathering where the microwave radiometry community has an opportunity to present new designs, research results, technological advances and unique innovations in the field of passive microwave remote sensing. The meeting will cover wide radiometry applications and fields such as soil moisture and state, ocean salinity, cryosphere, ocean dynamics, sounding, radiometer calibration, radio frequency interference issues, new technologies etc. The meeting is expected to attract scientists and engineers from all over the world.

Proceedings from the MicroRad conference will be archived by IEEE in IEEE Xplore, with an IEEE special issue/section planned for the Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing (JSTARS).

MicroRad 2018 is sponsored by the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
