Define Antenna Brightness temperature.


23. Define Antenna Brightness temperature.

When the antenna beam width is broad enough that different parts of the antenna pattern see different background temperatures, the effective brightness temperature seen by the antenna can be found by weighting the spatial distribution of background temperature by the pattern function of the antenna.

Mathematically we can write the brightness temperature Tb seen by the antenna as
