Book Description :

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 velocity of the Bragg scatterers. The focus setting does not depend significantly on the imaging mechanism, that is velocity bunching, modulation of Bragg waves, and so on. Comparisons of our model predictions are made with the TOWARD results. A simple analytic prediction is obtained for the complete curve of the observed energy in swell versus the focus setting. The maximum of this curve is predicted to occur at one-half of the phase speed of the swell for azimuthally traveling swell and a simple explanation is provided for this result. The asymmetry in the visibility of the swell obtained by flying with or against the long waves is estimated. The asymmetry arises from competition between velocity bunching and hydrodynamic modulations. (JHD).

Book Description :

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 relevant data sets as sea surface temperature and topography, ocean circulation, sea level variability, wind speed and stress, wave height, solar radiation flux at ocean surfaces, and sea-ice characteristics and ice motion. It also discusses the reliability of remotely sensed data and provides information about the applicability of the various data sets to particular process studies. Its completeness and relevance makes Oceanographic Applications of Remote Sensing an important reference for modern studies of ocean and coupled ocean-atmosphere processes. Its unique coverage of the physics that govern satellite processes and their applications to oceanography ensures that it will remain an important reference as new satellites are introduced.

Book Description :

The Tower Ocean Wave and Radar Dependence Experiment (TOWARD) is a coordinated effort, involving both field experimentation and theoretical investigations, to address the divergent hypotheses on the mechanisms involved in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging of the ocean surface. In the formulation of the experiment it was recognized that three distinct disciplines were to be addressed: (1) hydrodynamics, (2) radar backscatter, and (3) SAR image processing. The field operations were executed in three 6-week segments during the period October 1984 to January 1986. The Naval Ocean Systems Center tower, located offshore of Mission Beach, San Diego, California, was used as the focal point for the field operations. The primary measurements included in situ capillary and short gravity waves, long surface and internal waves, ambient current and detailed meteorological measurements, stereophotography, tower-based multifrequency radars and an L band SAR deployed on board the NASA CV-990. The single most significant result is the determination that none of the available hypotheses on SAR imaging of long surface waves could be demonstrated to explain all the SAR observations obtained in TOWARD.

Book Description :

Progress is reported on three tasks designed to provide information to evaluate the operational use of SAR, so that ultimately, meaningful ocean shallow-water wave spectra and coastal wave height information can be supplied to the Navy in real-time. Under Task 1, a limited literature search was conducted to ascertain problems encountered in imaging sea states with SAR. The search indicated four fundamental problem areas where basic research is needed, before SAR can become a useful tool for the Navy. Under Task 2, solutions to SAR signal processing problems were explored and geometrical coorections of SAR wave imagery were considered.

Book Description :

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 with the velocity-bunching mechanism in calm ocean areas to produce the unusually narrow wakes observed for azimuth-traveling ships on SEASAT images; and (2) to estimate conditions under which SAR image modulation mechanisms can be expected to produce wake images. A method is described for using the Kelvin transverse ship wake wave component to quantitatively evaluate the contributions of various SAR ocean wave imaging mechanisms. It makes use of the narrow sector of surface roughness generated by a ship along its track to produce SAR images of the longest waves in its wake system on flat calm water.

Book Description :

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 1960s, ahead of optical systems that image in the visible and infrared regions of the spectrum. Optical remote sensing was given a strong impetus with the launch of the first of the Landsat series of satellites in the mid 1970s. Although the Seasat satellite launched in the same era (1978) carried an imaging radar, it operated only for about 12 months and there were not nearly so many microwave systems as optical platforms in service during the 1980s. As a result, the remote sensing community globally tended to develop strongly around optical imaging until Shuttle missions in the early to mid 1980s and free-flying imaging radar satellites in the early to mid 1990s became available, along with several sophisticated aircraft platforms. Since then, and particularly with the unique capabilities and flexibility of imaging radar, there has been an enormous surge of interest in microwave imaging technology. Unlike optical imaging, understanding the theoretical underpinnings of imaging radar can be challenging, particularly when new to the field.

Book Description :

A wide variety of marginal basins, ranging from polar to equatorial regions, and a few sizeable enclosed basins, can all be included among the Asian Seas. The Arctic Ocean shelf seas off Siberia; the sheltered basins along the Pacific Ocean’s western rim; the coastal seas of the northernmost Indian Ocean, including the semi-enclosed Red Sea and Persian Gulf; the Caspian Sea, the remnants of the Aral Sea and a score of brackish or freshwater lakes, such as Lake Balkhash and Lake Baykal; all exhibit a multiplicity of environmental features and processes. Understanding the peculiarities of such a large and varied collection of marine and coastal types requires integrated observation systems, among which orbital remote sensing must play an essential role. This volume reviews the current potential of Earth Observations in assessing the many Asian seascapes, using both passive and active techniques in diverse spectral regions, such as measuring reflected visible and near-infrared sunlight and surface emissions in the thermal infrared and microwave range, or surface reflection of transmitted radar pulses in the microwave range. An in-depth evaluation of the available spectral regions and observation techniques, as well as of novel multi-technique methods, ensures that suitable tools are indeed accessible for exploring and managing the wealth of resources that the Asian Seas have to offer.

Book Description :

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 hardly have imagined the extent to which new techniques of measurement, particularly by remote sensing, new methods of calculation and computation, and new theoretical and laboratory results would, in the following twenty years, build on this base. When Gaspar Valenzuela of the V. S. Naval Research Laboratory perceived that the time was right for a second such meeting, it was natural that Sir George Deacon would be invited to serve as honorary chairman for the meeting, and the entire waves community was delighted at his acceptance. The present volume contains reviewed and edited papers given at this second meeting, held this time in Miami, Florida, May 13-20, 1981, with the generous support of the Office of Naval Research, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
