A new method for wind-field retrieval with spatially and temporally high-resolution using marine radar-image sequences is presented. The method is based on analyzing the movement of wind gusts, which become visible in radar image sequences after filtering. In contrast to previous methods, this new technique requires no calibration phase of the radar system. The retrieved wind directions are compared to wind directions of the recently developed method, were wind directions are extracted from… CONTINUE READING
