A novel technique has been developed to verify the absolute accuracy and relative stability of a spaceborne microwave radiometer's calibration using a statistical analysis of the measured Earth brightness temperatures (TBs). This procedure relies solely on the final, main beam-referenced TBs and so tests the complete end-to-end system calibration, including instrument temperature and non-linearity corrections, the stability of reference TB calibration standards, and far-side lobe antennadoi:10.1109/igarss.2000.860260 fatcat:tjrvxba6gzhkdafhigu6irntc4
