Abstract:

The long term goal of this proposed project is to improve our understanding of the air-sea interaction as observed by synthetic aperture radar SAR. From numerous studies in the past it has been shown that the atmosphere leaves an imprint on the ocean surface. We propose to analyze and examine different SAR data from L-band, C-band and X-band systems, to refine algorithms that extract information on interactions between the ocean and atmosphere for different meteorological conditions including cyclonic forcing.
