Wind direction over the sea can be determined from radiometric measurements of the third Stokes parameter (T/sub U/). The Kirchhoff method is extended under the stationary phase approximation to compute the dependence of T/sub U/ on frequency, wind speed and incidence angle. Numerical predictions, in agreement with experimental measurements, are presented.
