Radar observations of the ocean surface can be affected by impacting raindrops. Ring-wave measurements are presented for drops of 2.2 and 2.8 mm in diameter impacting on fresh and salt water surfaces initially at rest. They are based on the observation of the mirror image of a sharp edge on the perturbed surface. The retrieved wave profiles show a rather(More)
Rain falling on a water surface can dramatically modify its roughness and hence its reflectivity. When a single raindrop hits a quiet water surface, it generates a crater with a crown which collapses to form a stalk ofwater, and then subsides to generate rings of gravity-capillary waves. These effects introduce biases on wind speed estimates from(More)
