Coincident measurements of ocean surface windspeed, temperature, and microwave emissivity reveal a clear dependence of the slope of the emissivity versus windspeed on the temperature. Water at higher tempertures has a greater increase in emissivity per unit wind speed. This temperature dependence is a residual result of the dependence of the specular ocean surface emissivity on temperature. As the temperature increases, specular microwave emissivity decreases. Since wind roughening and foamdoi:10.1109/igarss.1999.775112 fatcat:4z7qvwhcf5hihp7iame6glrqle
