ISBN-13: 9781498767767

This publication demonstrates the features of passive microwave procedure for more advantageous observations of ocean positive aspects, together with the detection of (sub)surface occasions and/or disturbances whereas laying out the advantages and limits of those equipment. It represents not just an advent and whole description of the most rules of ocean microwave radiometry and imagery, but in addition offers information for extra experimental reports. in addition, it expands the research of distant sensing tools, versions, and strategies and specializes in a high-resolution multiband imaging commentary concept. Such a sophisticated method offers readers with a brand new point of geophysical details and knowledge acquisition granting the chance to enhance their services on complicated microwave expertise, turning into now an fundamental software for diagnostics of ocean phenomena and disturbances.

Wind Ocean Phenomena 13 waves represent multiscale dynamic geometric disturbances, generated mostly stochastically through multiple cascade processes. Sometimes, we may separate environmental wind waves and other possible (induced) surface disturbances because there are some differences in their generating mechanisms and geometrical properties. But it is quite difficult to distinguish them properly by spectral and statistical characteristics. Therefore, adequate hydrodynamic description and modeling of an overall system of ocean surface waves, their scales, evolution, and dynamics are still of great interest in many applications.

This new approach provides prediction and investigation of ocean microwave signatures through computer experiments. A number of realistic scenes and scenarios related to different oceanic processes, phenomena, or events can be investigated numerically. Electromagnetic models of microwave emission and scattering from the sea surface are constantly updated and improved. An ultimate method or tool suitable for theoretical analysis of ocean microwave data has not yet been found (unlike, for example, Earth’s land microwave observations).
