A model is presented for Synthetic Aperture Radar imaging of the ocean surface. The model attempts to avoid making assumptions about the relative importance of various imaging mechanisms. The model is applied to three issues, the focus setting, the asymmetry in the images obtained with obtained with opposite airplane flight directions, and the azimuthal image shift of features on range directed waves. The focus setting depends on a combination of the velocity of the pattern being imaged and on the

The ocean covers approximately 71% of the Earth's surface, 90% of the biosphere and contains 97% of Earth's water. The Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) can image the ocean surface in all weather conditions and day or night. SAR remote sensing on ocean and coastal monitoring has become a research hotspot in geoscience and remote sensing. This book--Progress in SAR Oceanography--provides an update of the current state of the science on ocean remote sensing with SAR. Overall, the book presents a variety of marine

In 1960, Dr. George Deacon ofthe National Institute ofOceanography in England organized a meeting in Easton, Maryland that summarized the state of our understanding at that time of ocean wave statistics and dynamics. It was a pivotal occasion: spectral techniques for wave measurement were beginning to be used, wave-wave interactions hadjust been discovered, and simple models for the growth of waves by wind were being developed. The meeting laid the foundation for much work that was to follow, but one could

Oceanographic Applications of Remote Sensing describes how remotely sensed data fields can be applied to help solve problems in ocean-related studies. This timely reference, written by and for oceanographers, emphasizes the application of data to particular physical, chemical, and biological processes related to the ocean and the ocean-atmosphere system. The organization of the book reflects this emphasis, with chapters arranged by process rather than by sensor characteristics. Oceanographic Applications of Remote Sensing contains comprehensive information on the application of such

This book is concerned with remote sensing based on the technology of imaging radar. It assumes no prior knowledge of radar on the part of the reader, commencing with a treatment of the essential concepts of microwave imaging and progressing through to the development of multipolarisation and interferometric radar, modes which underpin contemporary applications of the technology. The use of radar for imaging the earth’s surface and its resources is not recent. Aircraft-based microwave systems were operating in the 1960

The Joint Ocean Wave Investigation Project (JOWIP) was conducted to evaluate the detectability of ocean wave structures on imaging synthetic aperture radar (SAR). This project used Kelvin surface ship wake patterns generated under controlled and well documented surface environmental conditions to isolate SAR image parameters. Use of waves of known wavelength and direction provide the opportunity to evaluate the SAR contribution to ocean wave forecasting. SEASAT-like images made with L-band SAR are presented: (1) to suggest how ship-generated surface roughness combines
