Improving Soil Moisture Profile Prediction With the Particle Filter-Markov Chain Monte Carlo Method

Satellite soil moisture estimates have received increasing attention over the past decade. This paper examines the applicability of estimating soil moisture states and soil hydraulic parameters through two particle filter (PF) methods: The PF with comm…

Airborne SAR Moving Target Signatures and Imagery Based on LVD

This paper presents a new ground moving target imaging (GMTIm) algorithm for airborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) based on a novel time-frequency representation (TFR), Lv’s distribution (LVD). We first analyze generic moving target signatures for a …

High-Latitude Ionospheric Irregularity Drift Velocity Estimation Using Spaced GPS Receiver Carrier Phase Time–Frequency Analysis

The conventional spaced-receiver approach uses amplitude scintillations to estimate equatorial ionospheric irregularity drift velocities. This approach is less applicable at high latitudes where there is a lack of substantial amplitude scintillations. …

Ocean Turbulent Dynamics at Superresolution From Optimal Multiresolution Analysis and Multiplicative Cascade

The synoptic determination of ocean circulation using the data acquired from space, with a coherent depiction of its turbulent characteristics, remains a fundamental challenge in oceanography. This determination has the potential of revealing all aspec…

The GO4 Model in Near-Nadir Microwave Scattering From the Sea Surface

We introduce a practical and accurate model, referred to as “GO4,” to describe near-nadir microwave scattering from the sea surface, and at the same time, we address the issue of the filtered mean square slope (mss) conventionally used in…

Simultaneous Sparse Graph Embedding for Hyperspectral Image Classification

Sparse graph embedding (SGE) is a promising technique useful for the nonlinear feature extraction (FE) of hyperspectral images (HSIs). However, such images exhibit spatial variability and spectral multimodality, presenting challenges to existing FE met…

Modeling and Simulation of Glacier Avalanche: A Case Study of Gayari Sector Glaciers Hazards Assessment

Glacier avalanches are natural hazards that could damage infrastructures and threaten lives in high-altitude mountainous terrains. On April 7, 2012, a massive ice avalanche struck a Pakistani base at Gayari sector, Saltoro Valley, and buried/killed 148…

A Simplified Formulation for Rough Surface Cross-Polarized Backscattering Under the Second-Order Small-Slope Approximation

We present simplified expressions for the cross-polarized backscatter of a randomly rough surface predicted by the second-order small-slope approximation (SSA2). The simplification is based on appropriate polynomial approximations of the SSA2 kernel fu…
