Abstract

It is of great significance to experiment with a simulator for remote sensing to confirm the properties and meaning of remote-sensed information and to forecast certain phenomena. This paper describes a simulator for remote sensing. The simulator, suitable for the measurement of soil moisture, consists of an optical source, a polarimeter, orbital guides for them, and a sample stage. SiC and MgO were used as soil models. The moisture in beach sand was also estimated. The degree of polarization increases with the moisture content and particle size of the sample. The field capacity point of each sample is determined by means of the polarimeter.
