Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to employ near-surface wind speed derived from synthetic aperture radar SAR images of the sea surface as a marine meteorological research and forecasting tool. That is, we aim to use SAR-derived wind speed SDWS images to discover dynamical and morphological characteristics of microscale, mesoscale, and synoptic scale marine meteorological phenomena. We also aim to demonstrate how the fruits of our discovery can be used to aid marine meteorological analysts and forecasters.
