Abstract:

This work is to develop and test methods to estimate currents and wind direction from ATI SAR data at high-resolution ideally, at the same resolution as the SAR image, and thereby provide a high-fidelity surface current information in littoral and riverine environments. Furthermore, these techniques will be developed using technology suitable for operation from UAVs.The specific objectives are to Add an L-band and an X-band ATI SAR to our airborne platform Collect multi-frequency ATI SAR data in a coastal environment where terrain and vegetation are likely to affect wind forcing on the water surface Develop a retrieval algorithm to estimate both surface currents and wind direction within the domain imaged.
