AbstractA method for internally calibrating microwave total power radiometers by using only one level of noise injection is presented. It is based on having a previous accurate characterization of the receiver noise temperature, which used de facto as a second calibration standard. The method proves to be at least equivalent to the classical two level, as demonstrated through their intercomparison using the data provided by the Microwave Imaging Radiometer using Aperture Synthesis (MIRAS) on board the European Space Agency Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) Satellite. The long-term stability in terms of retrieved brightness temperature using both methods has similar trends with a small advantage for the one-point approach proposed her
