Abstract:

The objectives of the grant were to use a coherent real aperture radar to 1 study the interaction of surface waves with internal wave, the process that is responsible for the synthetic aperture radar SAR imagery of internal waves 2 Determine the extent to which Doppler velocity modulations observed by coherent radars, including along-track interferometric SARs, are faithful representations of surface currents generated by internal waves and 3 track the temporal and spatial development of internal waves as they are generated, propagate and dissipate.
