Special Issue Information
For several decades, radar sensors have been used for sea surface observations at a range of spatial and temporal scales. Marine radar remote sensing, with its ever-increasing technological maturity, has become a widely validated method to detect and study the ocean. For instance, satellite altimeters conduct accurate daily measurements of changes in elevation of the ocean surface, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) maps internal waves and oil spills, radar scatterometers estimate sea surface winds, and the spaceborne spectrometer SWIM (Surface Wave Investigation and Monitoring) measures the global wave direction spectrum. These phenomena are mainly the results of variation in the characteristics of the upper water layers and modulation of short wind waves on the sea surface, which are mainly responsible for imaging the phenomena in signals of radar remote sensing instruments. Although significant progress has been made in ocean remote sensing, many aspects of ocean surface electromagnetic wave scattering and the mechanisms of signal and imaging of oceanic/atmospheric phenomena are still poorly understood.
This Special Issue is focused on the latest developments in radar signal processing and imaging for ocean remote sensing. We encourage submissions on the theory and modeling of ocean microwave scattering and radar signal processing, as well as field and laboratory experiments, including but not limited to the following topics:
- Design and investigation of radar signal processing and imaging algorithms for ocean remote sensing;
- Radar remote sensing of sea surface winds, waves, currents, sea ice, internal wave, oil spill and other features;
- Radar remote sensing detections or recognitions of hard targets (ships, oil rigs, etc.);
- Radar remote sensing image segmentation and classification in coastal environments;
- Innovative or improved methods and algorithms for radar remote sensing for oceanography applications;
- Algorithms or schemes for the retrieval of key surface parameters of the lower atmosphere or the upper ocean;
- Application of artificial intelligence for pre- and post-processing remotely sensed data and signals.
