The 2-D frequency-based omega-K method is known to be a suitable algorithm for fully focused SAR (FF-SAR) radar altimeter processors, as its computational efficiency is much higher than equivalent time-based alternatives without much performance degradation. In this article, we provide a closed-form description of a 2-D frequency-domain omega...

Earthquakes have devastating effects on densely urbanised regions, requiring rapid and extensive damage assessment to guide resource allocation and recovery efforts. Traditional damage assessment is time-consuming, resource-intensive, and faces challenges in covering vast affected areas, often limiting timely decision-making. Space-borne...

A vital component in the management of seismic hazard is the study of past seismic events. Classically, this has been the domain of seismology, which studies the dynamic manifestations of the event to infer properties such as epicenter and moment magnitude. More recently it has become possible to perform similar analyses on the basis of the...

Sentinel-1 observes the whole globe every 12 days (6 days when both satellites were operational) and provides a wealth of data relevant to agriculture. Sugarcane cultivators could potentially benefit from these data by using them to assist operational and management practices. However, first, thorough understanding is needed of Sentinel-1...

Simultaneous multiangle spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) can provide spatially diverse SAR images of the same scene without time lags. Through differential SAR interferometry (D-InSAR), the system can extract accurate multidimensional deformations from the mixing differential tropospheric delay (DTD), which generally distorts...

We introduce the term loss-of-lock to describe a specific form of coherence loss that results in the breakage of a synthetic aperture radar interferometric (InSAR) time series. Loss-of-lock creates a specific pattern in the coherence matrix of a multilooked distributed scatterer (DS) by which it may be detected. Along with identification, we...

We present a deep learning-based approach called DipSAR for reconstructing millimeter-wave synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images from sparse samples. The primary challenge lies in the requirement of a large training dataset for deep learning schemes. To overcome this issue, we employ the deep image prior (DIP) technique, which eliminates the...

In this article, our aim is to estimate synthetic aperture radar (SAR) observables, such as backscatter in VV and VH polarizations, as well as the VH/VV ratio, cross ratio, and interferometric coherence in VV, from agricultural fields. In this study, we use the decision support system for agrotechnology transfer (DSSAT) crop-growth simulation...

In this thesis, the achievable performance and limitations of a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) seeker on an Anti-Ship Ballistic Missile (ASBM) for a set of parameters has been investigated. This was achieved by modelling the dynamics of an ASBM and the constraints related to the acquisition requirements of a maritime surface target in the ...

Satellite data, such as optical and Synthetic Aperture Radar imagery, can provide information about the location and level of destruction caused by natural hazards. This information is essential to optimise the rescue mission logistics by humanitarian aid organisations and save people in need. Currently, many Automatic Damage Assessment (ADA)...

Drought is a major natural hazard that impacts agriculture, the environment, and socio-economic conditions. In 2018 and 2019, Europe experienced a severe drought due to below average precipitation and high temperatures. Drought stress affects the moisture content and structure of agricultural crops and can result in lower yields. Synthetic...

In the Arctic Ocean, obtaining water levels from satellite altimetry is hampered by the presence of sea ice. Hence, water level retrieval requires accurate detection of fractures in the sea ice (leads). This paper describes a thorough assessment of various surface type classification methods, including a thresholding method, nine supervised-,...

Fast observations of rapid surface large-changes are demanded in disaster evaluations and scientific studies. Digital elevation model (DEM) differencing before and after the events is an effective way to retrieve the changes. Owing to a short repeat cycle, geosynchronous synthetic aperture radar (GEO SAR) systems can quickly obtain repeat...

Compact and low-cost radar transponders are an attractive alternative to corner reflectors (CRs) for interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) deformation monitoring, datum connection, and geodetic data integration. Recently, such transponders have become commercially available for C-band sensors, which poses relevant questions on...

The Polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar (PolSAR) systems use electromagnetic radiations of different polarizations in the microwave frequency to collect the scattering information from targets on the Earth. Nevertheless, as with any other electronic device, the PolSAR systems are also not ideal and subjected to distortions. The most...

Observations of wind and ocean surface velocity vectors by along-track interferometry (ATI) with the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) are not only important for direct applications but also to increase understandings of ocean upper layer mixing, air-ocean interactions, and mapping submesoscale (1-10 km) structures. An experimental bidirectional...

Atmospheric delay has a profound impact on synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry, inducing a spatial signal that significantly devaluates interferometric products. While the wide-scale variability of the atmosphere can be adequately modeled with global or regional weather models, it is especially the turbulent and convective part of the...

There is a growing demand for detailed and accurate landslide maps and inventories worldwide. The mapping of landslides is essential for emergency response, disaster mitigation and a better understanding of landslides. Currently, it is still difficult to detect the timing and extent of landslides accurately through satellite imagery. Most often...

In the arctic region many coastal areas exhibit rapid erosion, with coastal retreat or erosion rates of 10 meters per year (m/yr.) or higher in places. This poses a threat primarily to all manner of infrastructure built directly on and near the coastline. With climate change the coastal erosion is expected to increase. This effect is expected to...

The estimation of Signal-to-Clutter Ratio (SCR) of a radar point target, such as a corner reflector, is an essential step for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry and positioning, as it influences the phase measurement variance as well as the absolute positioning precision. The standard method to estimate the SCR of a point target...
