    Spaceborne SAR Antennas for Earth Science use of fully polarimetric, multi-frequency SAR to understand global environmental changes. The SIR-C antenna represents major advances in radar technology to obtain fully polarimetric SAR data from space [4]. In order to measure the weak cross-polarization signal, the SIR-C antenna must be efficient. Spaceborne Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) is a well established technique useful in many land applications, such as monitoring tectonic movements and landslides or extracting digital elevation models. One of its major limitations is the atmospheric variability, and in particular the high water vapor spatial and temporal.

The principal limitation to rain measurement from a spaceborne SAR is the poor SCR (signal-to-clutter ratio).Author: Atiq Ahamad. A ratio of the two measurements yields a factor proportional to the attenuation from which the average rain rate can be deduced.

In this paper, we extend the technique to spaceborne radars by choosing the ground as a reference target. The technique is also generalized so that both the average and range-profiled rain rates can be determined.

Various spaceborne bi- and multistatic SAR configurations are introduced, and their potential for different applications such as frequent monitoring, wide-swath imaging, scene classification.

Spaceborne polarimetric SAR interferometry enables quantitative measurements of important bio- and geophysical parameters of the Earth surface on a global scale. The potentials of polarimetric SAR interferometry for image segmentation, classification, and vegetation measurements have successfully been demonstrated in many airborne SAR campaigns.

This paper studies the performance of a spaceborne precipitation radar in measuring vertical Doppler velocity of rainfall. As far as a downward pointing precipitation radar is concerned, one of the major problems affecting Doppler measurement at the nadir direction arises from the Non-Uniform Beam-Filling effect (NUBF).

Spaceborne radar interferometric delay measurements were used to infer high-resolution maps of integrated atmospheric water vapor, which can be readily related to meteorological phenomena.

Maps of the water vapor distribution associated with a precipitating cloud, a partly precipitating cold front, and horizontal convective rolls reveal quantitative measures that are not observed with. This book discusses in detail the science and morphology of powerful hurricane detection systems.

It broadly addresses new approaches to monitoring hazards using freely available images from the European Space Agency’s (ESA’s) Sentinel-1 SAR satellite and benchmarks a new interdisciplinary field at the interface between oceanography, meteorology and remote sensing.

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) In synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging, microwave pulses are transmitted by an antenna towards the earth surface. The microwave energy scattered back to the spacecraft is measured. The SAR makes use of the radar principle to form an image by utilizing the time delay of the backscattered signals.

Image courtesy John Apel [Evans, ] Figure b. Synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) is a form of radar that is used to create two-dimensional images or three-dimensional reconstructions of objects, such as landscapes.

SAR uses the motion of the radar antenna over a target region to provide finer spatial resolution than conventional beam-scanning radars. SAR is typically mounted on a moving platform, such as an aircraft or spacecraft, and has its.

Abstract: The accuracy of Ku-band ocean wind scatterometers (i.e., NSCAT and SeaWinds) is impacted to varying degrees by rain. In order to determine how to best flag rain-contaminated wind vector cells and ultimately to calibrate out the effects of rain as much as possible, we must understand the impact of rain on the backscatter measurements that are used to retrieve wind.

Radar - Radar - Factors affecting radar performance: The performance of a radar system can be judged by the following: (1) the maximum range at which it can see a target of a specified size, (2) the accuracy of its measurement of target location in range and angle, (3) its ability to distinguish one target from another, (4) its ability to detect the desired target echo when masked by large.

As the operating frequencies of SAR-systems are increasing, the visible distortions due to precipitation in SAR-images are becoming more frequent.

This holds especially for the case of convective rain events. The German space-borne satellite TerraSAR-X has delivered a series of measurement examples, which were used to study precipitation effects in SAR-images. Bistatic SAR processing will now integrate multiple radar pulses of bandwidth B n and pulse duration t p, thereby improving the SNR by a factor of n rg.n az, where n rg ¼ B n.t p and n az ¼ PRF.T int are the number of indepen- dent data samples in range and azimuth, respectively.

In addition, the 1D LOS nature of deformation measurements represents a limitation with respect to other techniques that can provide 3D deformation measurements, like total stations, GPS, etc. The correct estimation of φ atmo requires the availability of stable areas in the surroundings of the deformation area of interest (Monserrat, ).Ineffective during heavy rain or low hanging clouds: LiDAR pulses may be affected by heavy rains or low hanging clouds because of the effects of refraction.

However the data collected can still be used for analysis. Degraded at high sun angles and reflections: LiDAR technology does not work well in areas or situations where there are high sun angles or huge reflections since the laser pulses.Despite these difficulties and limitations, SAR images SAR data and high resolution current measurements by along-track interferometry.

We discuss requirements in [3], the systematic use of spaceborne SAR for the remote sensing of current features began.
