Analysis of surface wind retrieval in coastal areas from SAR
Paper i proceeding, 2014
There are different parameters inherent to coastal areas that can affect the backscattering of the ocean surface detected by Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). The parameters include the influence of land, the influence of the SAR acquisition geometry, and the influence of backscattering features not directly related to wind variations. This work focuses on the study of the influence of those parameters for the performance of surface wind retrieval with C-band SAR data in coastal areas.
