Instrumentation and retrieval algorithms are described which use the forward scattered range-coded signals from the global positioning system (GPS) radio navigation system for the measurement of sea surface roughness. This roughness has long been known to be dependent upon the surface wind speed. Experiments were conducted from aircraft along the TOPEX(More)
The NASA EV-2 Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) is a spaceborne mission focused on tropical cyclone (TC) inner core process studies. CYGNSS attempts to resolve the principle deficiencies with current TC intensity forecasts, which lies in inadequate observations and modeling of the inner core. The inadequacy in observations results from two(More)
[1] Since 1996 when GPS reflected signals were purposefully acquired, an effort to assess the utility of these signals has been under way. It was early determined that the reflected GPS signal can be related to ocean surface wind dependent slope probability densities. Quantifying that relationship has resulted in considerable data taken at wind speeds below(More)
The Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) is a spaceborne mission concept focused on tropical cyclone (TC) inner core process studies. CYGNSS attempts to resolve the principle deficiencies with current TC intensity forecasts, which lies in inadequate observations and modeling of the inner core. CYGNSS consists of 8 GPS bistatic radar receivers(More)
Global Positioning System (GPS) signals reflected from the ocean surface have potential use for various remote sensing purposes. Some possibilities are measurements of surface roughness characteristics from which wave height, wind speed and direction could be determined. In this paper, recent reflected GPS measurements collected via aircraft with a delay(More)
Optical-mechanical scanning techniques are generally employed in instruments specifically designed to characterize variations in scene brightness spectrally or radiometrically. The effect of aliasing, which can be caused by line-scan sampling, on the spatial detail of the reconstructed image has therefore been of little concern. Emphasis of some recent(More)
