Application of the ICF Coherence Time Method for Ocean Remote Sensing Using Digital Communication Satellite Signals

  title={Application of the ICF Coherence Time Method for Ocean Remote Sensing Using Digital Communication Satellite Signals},
  author={Rashmi Shah and James L. Garrison},
  journal={IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing},
This paper applies an ocean remote sensing method, first developed for reflected Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS-R) signals, to reflected digital communication satellite signals. The fundamental observation is the time series of the Interferometric Complex Field (ICF) of the reflected signal. A relationship is derived between the coherence time of the ICF time series and the significant wave height (SWH) and mean wave period (MWP) of the ocean. Direct and reflected signals from the S… CONTINUE READING
