A method to estimate sea surface elevation maps from marine radar image sequences is presented. This method is the extension of an existing inverse modeling technique to derive wave spectra from marine radar images, which assumes linear wave theory with temporal stationarity and spatial homogeneity of the observed sea surface elevation. The proposed… (More)

This work presents the estimation of wave field properties derived from X-band marine radar measurements taken close to coastal locations, where the wave fields are affected by the finite water depth conditions. The work is focused on the detection of individual waves and their related characteristics, such as the estimation of the local and instantaneous… (More)
