Synthetic Aperture Radar Imaging of Internal Waves

  title={Synthetic Aperture Radar Imaging of Internal Waves},
  author={Richard F. Gasparovic and John R. Apel and A. Brandt and Eric S. Kasischke},
Over the past 10 years, synthetic aperture radars (SAR) have frequently detected pronounced signatures of nonlinear, coastal internal waves 1-6 that are produced by the interaction of short-wavelength surface waves with internal wave-induced surface currents. A qualitative representation of the signature generation process is shown in Fig. 1 for a group of nonlinear internal waves. At the leading edge of each wave, there is a region of convergent flow that produces increased surface roughness… CONTINUE READING
