Radiometric measurements of the microwave emissivity of foam were conducted in May 2000 at the Naval Research Laboratory's Chesapeake Bay Detachment using radiometers operating at 10. polarization measurements were obtained at 10.8 GHz. Surface foam was generated by blowing compressed air through gas permeable tubes supported by an aluminum frame and(More)
A dual-beam along-track interferometric synthetic aperture radar which is entirely self-contained within an aircraft pod has been developed by the University of Massachusetts to study sea surface processes in coastal regions. The radar operates at 5.3 GHz with a bandwidth of up to 25 MHz. System hardware is described. Initial test flights aboard the NOAA(More)
—The relationship between synthetic aperture radar (SAR) signatures of depth-limited breaking waves and wave height is studied. Wave height is estimated from SAR images using an empirically derived relationship that exploits the azimuthal shift in SAR images associated with moving scatterers. This relationship is derived from in situ measurements rather(More)
