This research has been obtained from the cooperation between the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and NASDA in ADEOS-II Research activity. The research was also funded by the project EURAINSAT, as a shared-cost project cofunded by the Research Directorate General of the European Commission within the research and technological development activities of a generic nature of the Environment and Sustainable Development subprogram (5th Framework Programme).
