Transactions on Geoscience & Remote Sensing

About the Publication


The internationally subscribed monthly journal, Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (TGARS), publishes advances in sensing instruments and techniques used for the acquisition of geoscientific information as well as techniques for processing, enhancing and interpreting information derived from remote sensing instruments. Transactions on GRS is part of the basic service received with GRS membership or GRSS affiliation.

Large-Scale High-Resolution Modeling of Microwave Radiance of a Deep Maritime Alpine Snowpack

Applying passive microwave (PM) remote sensing to estimate mountain snow water equivalent (SWE) is challenging due in part to the large PM footprints and the high subgrid spatial variability of snow properties. In this paper, we linked the land surface…

Empirical Forecasting of HF-Radar Velocity Using Genetic Algorithms

We present a coastal ocean current forecasting system using exclusively past observations of a high-frequency radar (HF-Radar). The forecast is made by developing a new approach based on physical and mathematical results of the nonlinear dynamical syst…

Optimizing Radiation Patterns of a Cylindrical Polarimetric Phased-Array Radar for Multimissions

Accurate radar remote sensing requires a radar system with high cross-polarization isolation, highly matched dual-polarization patterns, and low sidelobes. A cylindrical polarimetric phased-array radar (CPPAR), which has polarization purity and scan-in…

On-Orbit Characterization of S-NPP VIIRS Transmission Functions

The Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) spacecraft executed a series of yaw maneuvers on February 15 and 16, 2012. Data collected during these maneuvers were used to characterize the transmission functions of the Visible Infrared Imager R…

Model-Based Fusion of Multi- and Hyperspectral Images Using PCA and Wavelets

In remote sensing, due to cost and complexity issues, multispectral (MS) and hyperspectral (HS) sensors have significantly lower spatial resolution than panchromatic (PAN) images. Recently, the problem of fusing coregistered MS and HS images has gained…

Tropical Cyclone Winds Retrieved From C-Band Cross-Polarized Synthetic Aperture Radar

This paper presents a geophysical model function (GMF) that has been developed to describe the relation of the ocean surface wind with the normalized radar cross section (NRCS) at C-band cross polarization (cross-pol). Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) im…

Characterization of Facade Regularities in High-Resolution SAR Images

The grammar of facade structures is often related to regularly distributed signature patterns in high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. Given those patterns in the imagery, they should be used as a source of information for identifying …

Graph-Based Supervised Automatic Target Detection

In this paper, we propose a detection method based on data-driven target modeling, which implicitly handles variations in the target appearance. Given a training set of images of the target, our approach constructs models based on local neighborhoods w…
