Abstract:

Radar backscatter measurements of the ocean were made by University of Kansas KU investigators from the Nordsee tower to determine scattering coefficients as a function of wind speed, incidence angle and look direction at C-, X- and Ku-bands and to determine the modulation of Bragg-resonant ripples by long waves. A modified version of the KU helicopter-borne scatterometer HELOSCAT was used to acquire the data. The radar backscatter data were collected at selected frequencies between 4 and 17 GHz, and incidence angles between 18 deg. and 70 deg. with VV- and HH-polarizations.
