We outline new physical foundations of microwave radiometric method of remote study of soils, and overview the methods of determination of effective temperature, estimation of surface roughness, and treatment of atmospheric effect. The possibilities of the radiometric method for estimation of the hydrophysical soil characteristics are demonstrated.
