Abstract:

Synthetic aperture radar SAR ocean wave imagery processed, analyzed, and archived at the Environmental Research Institute of Michigan ERIM is summarized. This summary includes a review of the SAR systems used to collect ocean wave imagery, as well as a brief review of the experiments where SAR ocean wave data was collected. The imagery from these experiments was manually examined to qualitatively rate the detectability of waves in each pass. This information is summarized in table form, along with the SAR operating parameters and environmental conditions for each of the experiments. The data summarized in this report can be used in evaluating current and future SAR ocean wave imaging models.
