Nowcasting high-intensity precipitation is crucial for emergency services and municipalities when making weather-dependent decisions. This research implements and trains a deep generative model for nowcasting using a cleaned precipitation radar composite dataset spanning 15 years, with a 5-minute temporal and 1 km spatial resolution.<br/><br/>We...

Mixed-phase clouds, which have a significant impact on the global climate, are complex systems where liquid water and various types of ice particles coexist at temperatures below the freezing point. A key process in mixed-phase clouds is riming which alters microphysical and scattering properties of ice particles. Cloud radar is a powerful...

Incoherent backscattering of mm-waves from natural rough surfaces is considered. A novel method is proposed to determine the statistical properties of surface scattering from range profile measurements. The method is based on modeling the road surface as a grid of uncorrelated scattering elements, described by normalized scattering matrices....

In this paper, the full calibration chain of FMCW radar with simultaneous transmission of two orthogonally polarized orthogonal waveforms is considered. Specifically for this type of polarimetric radar, compensation of signals’ biases and equalization of the amplification gains of the parallel polarimetric channels in the receiver are jointly...

The challenge of reconstructing the Doppler spectrum of a precipitation-like event observed by a fast-scanning weather radar is addressed. A novel method is proposed where the echo sequence in time is assumed to be a complex Gaussian process with a known covariance structure. It is a two-step approach where the first step is the estimation of...

Multi-mission satellite altimetry data have been used to study the spatial and temporal variability in global storm surge water levels. This was done by means of a time-dependent extreme value analysis applied to the monthly maximum detided water levels. To account for the limited temporal resolution of the satellite data, the data were first...

In this study, the problem of multipath in radar sensor networks for human activity recognition (HAR) has been examined. Traditionally considered as a source of additional clutter, the multipath is being investigated for its potential to be exploited through the creation of virtual radar nodes. These virtual nodes are conceptualized to...

ASCAT normalized backscatter (σ<sub>40</sub><sup>o</sup>) and slope (σ<sup>′</sup>) contain valuable information about soil moisture and vegetation. While σ<sub>40</sub><sup>o</sup> has been assimilated to constrain soil moisture, sometimes together with Leaf Area Index (LAI), this study is the first to assimilate σ<sup>′</sup> directly to...

The design of bespoke adaptive detection schemes relying on the joint use of multistatic/polarimetric measurements requires a preliminary statistical inference on the clutter interference environment. This is of paramount importance to develop an analytic model for the received signal samples, which is mandatory for the synthesis of radar...

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...

As one of the crucial sensors for environment sensing, frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radars are widely used in modern vehicles for driving assistance/autonomous driving. However, the limited frequency bandwidth and the increasing number of equipped radar sensors would inevitably cause mutual interference, degrading target...

Railway track health monitoring and maintenance are crucial stages in railway asset management, aiming to enhance the train operation quality and service life. For this aim, various inspection means (using diverse non-destructive testing techniques) have been applied, however, these means are mostly not able to monitor whole railway track...

Mutual interference between automotive frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar systems has been a concern over recent years. Several interference mitigation (IM) techniques have been proposed to mitigate this phenomenon, which is deemed to grow in severity as more systems are deployed on the road. In this article, an inexpensive...

Occupancy grid maps provide information about obstacles and available free space in the environment and are crucial in automotive driving applications. An occupancy map is constructed using point cloud data from sensor modalities such as light detection and ranging (LiDAR) and radar used for automotive perception. In this article, we...

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...

Earth Explorer 10 mission Harmony will consist of two satellites that fly in formation with Sentinel-1. It will operate as a multistatic radar in which Sentinel-1 transmits signals and all three satellites receive signals from different lines-of-sight. To prepare for Harmony and other possible future bistatic missions, transforms are derived...

A substantial number of vehicles nowadays are equipped with adaptive cruise control (ACC), which adjusts the vehicle speed automatically. However, experiments have found that commercial ACC systems which only detect the direct leader amplify the propagating disturbances in the platoon. This can cause severe traffic congestion when the number...

The problem of the limited accuracy of precipitation Doppler spectrum moments estimation measured by fast azimuthally scanning weather radars is addressed. A novel approach for the Doppler moment estimation based on maximum likelihood estimation is proposed. A simplified semianalytical parametric model for the precipitation power spectral...

Automatic target classification or recognition is a critical capability in noncooperative surveillance with radar in several defence and civilian applications. It is a well-established research field and numerous techniques exist for recognizing targets, including miniature unmanned air systems or drones (i.e., small, mini, micro, and nano...
