Abstract:

The long-term goal of this program is to be able to utilize SAR imagery to estimate surface currents over the ocean. With the availability of a large number of commercial SAR satellite sensors, it may be possible to have an operational capability to generate surface current maps around the worlds oceans that could be complimentary to the operational altimeters.
