This book is a collection of the most recent and significant research on algorithms for the analysis of polar sea-ice SAR data. All algorithms are implemented and tested. One chapter is from the Alaskan SAR Facility, the major NASA archive of polar SAR data and a source of many SAR analysis algorithms, including high-level results of such : Paperback. This book reviews recent advances in the use of SAR imagery for operational applications and for supporting science investigations of the polar oceans. The important parameters which can be extracted from spaceborne SAR imagery are discussed. Get this from a library! Analysis of SAR data of the polar oceans: recent advances. [C Tsatsoulis; R Kwok;] -- This book reviews recent advances in the use of SAR imagery for operational applications and for supporting science investigations of the polar oceans.

Kwok (eds.); Springer-Verlag, Berlin, Germany, , pp. Group Behavior of Robots. Polar oceanographers have heretofore been unable to turn to a book in which our current knowledge is synthesized. Polar Oceanography is a successful attempt to fill this void in the scientific literature, and it will be welcomed by researchers, instructors, and stuents of the high-latitude : Hardcover. A review of the main approaches developed for sea ice classification using satellite imagery is presented. Satellite data are the main and very often only information source for sea ice classification and charting in the remote arctic regions. The main techniques used for ice classification and ice charting in several national ice services are by: 1. Sea ice signatures are detectable by Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Satellites like RADARSAT-1, ERS1, ERS2, ENVISAT, JERS, and the newest generation of SAR systems like RADARSAT-2 and Terra SAR-X. Part of the emitted radar energy ( cm wavelength) directed at the ocean is reflected back to the satellite because of the roughness of the sea Cited by: 2.
