[ noun ] the strength of a radio wave picked up by a radio telescope

Used in print

(Cornell H. Mayer, "Radio Emission of the Moon...)

Not all the observers have used the same procedures or made the same assumptions about the lunar brightness distribution when reducing the data , and this , together with differences in the methods of calibrating the antennae and receivers , must account_for much of the disagreement in the measured radio_brightness temperatures .

These contour diagrams also suggest a rather rapid falloff in the radio_brightness with latitude .
