Characterization of Marine Surface Slicks by Radarsat-2 Multipolarization Features

In this paper, we study surface slick characterization in polarimetric C-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data. The objective is to identify the most powerful multipolarization SAR descriptors for mineral oil spill versus biogenic slick discriminati…

SMOS Brightness Temperature Angular Noise: Characterization, Filtering, and Validation

The 2-D interferometric radiometer on board the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite has been providing a continuous data set of brightness temperatures, at different viewing geometries, containing information of the Earth’s surface microw…

Disaggregation of Remotely Sensed Land Surface Temperature: A Generalized Paradigm

The environmental monitoring of earth surfaces requires land surface temperatures (LSTs) with high temporal and spatial resolutions. The disaggregation of LST (DLST) is an effective technique to obtain high-quality LSTs by incorporating two subbranches…

A Distributed Scatterer Interferometry Approach for Precision Monitoring of Known Surface Deformation Phenomena

This paper presents a new technique for mapping mean deformation velocity in highly decorrelated areas with known deformation patterns, exploiting high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data. The implemented method is based on distributed scatt…

3-Pol Polarimetric Weather Measurements With Agile-Beam Phased-Array Radars

Most actual polarimetric weather radars consider either alternate transmission of horizontal and vertical polarizations or simultaneous transmission of both polarizations. Simultaneous reception of vertical and horizontal components is always performed…

Micro-Doppler Trajectory Estimation of Pedestrians Using a Continuous-Wave Radar

Radar backscattering from human objects is subject to micro-Doppler modulations because of their flexible body articulations and complicated movement patterns, which can help identify the interested targets and provide valuable information about their …

Temperature and Emissivity Separation From MSG/SEVIRI Data

In this paper, we analyze the feasibility of applying the temperature and emissivity separation (TES) algorithm to thermal-infrared data acquired with three bands of the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) onboard the Meteosat Second…

GOST: A Geometric-Optical Model for Sloping Terrains

GOST is a geometric-optical (GO) model for sloping terrains developed in this study based on the four-scale GO model, which simulates the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) of forest canopies on flat surfaces. The four-scale GO mode…
