In this paper we analyse the GPS signals reflected by the surface of the ocean to retrieve information about the sea surface roughness, expressed in statistical terms by means of the sea surface Mean Square Slopes (MSS). Particularly, we perform Delay-Doppler mapping of real scattered GPS signals from the Surrey Satellite Technolody Ltd UK-DMC mission , and(More)
Image registration is a process encountered in many science fields wherein two or more images are acquired by different sensors, at different positions or times. In the context of remote sensing, image registration is a key step in change detection algorithms, SAR interferometry and data fusion. Basically, it involves four steps: (a) global registration,(More)
1. ABSTRACT The observation of active fires and thermal anomalies on the land surface has gained a considerable benefit from satellite remote sensing in the last decades. Nonetheless it is not straightforward to make full use of fire detection from satellite data, mainly because the requirements of good resolution in the spectral, spatial and temporal(More)
—We present the implementation of a facet-based sim-ulator to investigate the forward scattering of L-band signals from realistic sea surfaces and its application to spaceborne ocean Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Reflectometry. This approach provides a new flexible tool to assess the influence of the ocean surface roughness on scattered GNSS(More)
