Experimental Validation of a Technique to Estimate Vertical Wavelength Parameters From Gravity Wave Perturbations on Mesospheric Airglows

This paper establishes the experimental validation of a new technique to estimate the key intrinsic atmospheric gravity wave (AGW) parameters from imagery of mesospheric airglow layers. The technique provides two independent methods for estimating AGW …

Detecting Subsidence in Coastal Areas by Ultrashort-Baseline TCPInSAR on the Time Series of High-Resolution TerraSAR-X Images

In this paper, we present an improved approach of the multitemporal interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) for detecting land subsidence in coastal areas by using the time series of high-resolution SAR images. In particular, our algorithm ext…
