Determination of the signi fi cant wave height from shadowing in synthetic radar images

Abstract

Radar imagery is nowadays used to observe ocean waves despite the fact that radar images contain invisible areas because of the shadowing effect in the radar mechanism. Moreover, the radar images show the radar intensity which is not directly related to the wave height. This paper deals with the subject to estimate the significant wave height Hs from… (More)
