Along-track interferometric synthetic aperture radar (ATI–SAR) is an active coherent imaging system, utilizing two antennas separated along the platform flight direction. The phase information of ATI–SAR from the Doppler shift of the backscattered signal represents the line-of-sight velocity of the water scatterers. While the advent of ATI–SAR provided us with a potentially powerful technique for ocean surface current and wave mapping, the surface current has not been measured exactly from the… CONTINUE READING
