Fading statistics and sensing accuracy of ocean scattered GNSS and altimetry signals

  title={Fading statistics and sensing accuracy of ocean scattered GNSS and altimetry signals},
  author={Scott Gleason and Christine Gommenginger and David Cromwell},
This paper starts with a brief review of scattering statistics theory for diffusely scattered radar signals. Following, global navigation satellite systems reflected (GNSS-R) signals are used to demonstrate the results of non-coherent signal averaging on the mean and standard deviation of the signal power fluctuations. The retrieved signal fading statistics of GNSS-R signals detected in low Earth orbit have been analyzed as a function of consecutive uncorrelated measurements (or looks) and… CONTINUE READING
