Bathymetry strongly affects nearshore hydrodynamics that drive sediment transport. However, recent bed level information is not always available, especially not simultaneously resolved in space and time. Time series of radar backscatter images can be used to retrieve bed levels in the intertidal area with the so-called Temporal Waterline...

In many countries the number of wind turbines is growing rapidly as a response to the increasing demandfor renewable energy.Modern wind turbines are large structures, many reach more than 150 meters above theground. Clusters of densely spaced wind turbines, so called wind farms, are being built both on- and offshore. Wind farm installations...

This paper analysis the effects of soil moisture and vegetation water content (VWC) on total backscattering (σ_tot^0) simulated by water cloud model (WCM) throughout a growth cycle of maize at different frequencies, polarization modes, and incidence angles. Firstly, the bare soil backscatter (σ_soil^0) was simulated by Integral Equation Method ...

Wind is an important indicator of circulation related processes in the atmosphere. Accurate wind in- formation is used as an input for weather and circulation models. Wind data with a high temporal and spatial resolution are useful for research on the microphysics of the atmosphere, which is the area of application for the three-beam...

The automotive radars are significantly drifting towards the 77GHz electromagnetic spectrum band, and by 2020, they will no longer operate in the 24GHz band as per the regulations given by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in Europe and the U.S. With the communication systems...

While there are many technologies and electronic systems used to detect the human vital signs by monitoring the heart beat rate & respiration rate, all these systems rely on physical contact with the human body. Furthermore, each measuring system can only be used for a single person thus increasing the cost and complexity of integrated...

This thesis will focus on an 24 GHz indoor human presence detection radar with an optically transparent dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) applied in an enclosed light source. The DRA was studied extensively by simulations and measurements and demonstrated to suffer from blind spots for radar implementation because of the light bulb housing. To...

Repeat-pass acquisitions with coherent Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems, preserving both phase and amplitude, are more readily available than ever (Bruzzone, 2016). Phase measurements from SAR systems have seen widespread use in the Interferometric Synthetic Aperture (InSAR) technique to measure deformations and elevations since the late...

Automotive radars play a very important role in reduction of traffic accidents and casualties by making the vehicle fully self aware of its surroundings. For the vehicle to be fully self aware multiple sensors or radars have to placed in close proximity of each other on the body of the automobile. This will lead to interference between the...

Automotive radars play a crucial role in the reduction of traffic casualties and the realization of autonomous driving due to its robustness and adverse weather tolerance. However, as the penetration rate of automotive radars increases, concerns arise regarding the mutual interference. In contrast to the predominant Frequency-Modulated...

Defence institutions and military aircraft manufacturers are increasingly exploring the ways to im- prove stealth in new aircraft designs. Design for low observability, more specifically for low Radar Cross-Section is the fundamental design aspect during design of a new military aerial vehicle. Acoustic stealth is also an important...

While rainfall is the key input to most hydrological models, its precise characteristics are often uncertain. Runoff generation does not only depend on the measured rainfall resolution but also on the level of detail of land-use and therefore of the runoff generation. This study aims at identifying the influence of rainfall radar resolution and...

Polarimetry is a powerful remote sensing technique that can be used to characterize plane- tary atmospheres and potentially, to detect and characterize exoplanets. The degree of linear polarization as a function of wavelength and phase angle varies with the presence and compo- sition of cloud, haze and gas particles. In particular, when in-situ...

The North Sea is known for its marine activities, which need ocean data for safe operations. The ocean surface is described using the two-dimensional wave spectrum. This ocean wave spectrum can be estimated using wave buoys, wave models or remote sensing techniques. Wave buoys and numerical models are known to contain inaccuracies, which...

Nowcasting, synonymous for short term (0-6h) forecasting of precipitation with high detail in terms of location, timing and intensity, is a dynamic field of research in weather forecasting that is relevant in mitigating the impact of severe weather events. Along with the development of remote sensing instruments, the first methods that were...

Compressive Sensing (CS) provides a new paradigm in data acquisition and signal processing based on the assumption of sparsity and the incoherence of the received signal. Based on that concept, many radar front-end architectures have been studied with the implementation of CS. In these architectures, less data are collected but the radar scene...

Automotive radar is widely used for driving safety support and it is a key element of future autonomous vehicles. Radar sensors have the property that the performance is not to be affected by low vision conditions compared with camera sensors or laser based radar sensors, which makes it crucial for the autonomous driving system.

Automotive radar is a key element in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). With the growth of Automotive industry, there is a high demand for the sensors used in assisting systems. As the number of sensors increases, probability that these systems being in close proximity will also increase. This will lead to situations where in multiple...

Automotive RADARs have gained popularity recently as a means to sense obstacles and avoid collisions, thus preventing loss of life related to vehicular incidence. Research in object detection is increasingly tending towards the 77GHz automotive RADAR band, owing to the availability of larger bandwidths, resulting in high range resolution....

Recently, there has been an increasing awareness of the critical role of sleep for the brain development of young infants. During the early neonatal stages of human development, the basic activity of the brain is to develop itself during sleep. Prolonged sleep is required in infants for further development of the nervous system. Sleep also plays...
