This article focuses on methodologies with recurrent use to code examples that try to couple with the flow of the main steps of the SAR processing. The possibility to be comprehensive was prevented by the wide scenario of variations of the focusing algorithm as well as the spread of applications. The reader should look at this work as a sample of(More)
[1] A study of the retrieval of sea surface roughness using Global Navigation Satellite System-Reflectometry (GNSSR) from satellite is presented. Delay-Doppler Maps (DDMs) from the SSTL UK-DMC satellite are analyzed to retrieve directional Mean Square Slopes (MSSs). Results are compared to theoretically-derived MSSs and in situ measurements from co-located(More)
1. ABSTRACT The ability to investigate properties of the sea surface by means of navigation signals has recently received growing interest from the remote sensing community. This innovative technique is known as Global Navigation Satellite System-Reflectometry (GNSS-R), and it relies on signals of opportunity transmitted from GNSS Constellations (e.g. GPS,(More)
We present the implementation of a facet-based simulator 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)
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)
