Coastal wind field retrievals from ERS synthetic aperture radar images
(American Geophysical Union, 1998-04-15)
A unique series of European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS) 1 and 2 C band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images was obtained off the southern coast of Norway during the Coast Watch’95 experiment in September 1995. In this ...
Toward an optimal inversion method for synthetic aperture radar wind retrieval
(American Geophysical Union, 2002-08-01)
In recent years, particular efforts have been made to derive wind fields over the oceans from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. In contrast with the scatterometer, the SAR has a higher spatial resolution and therefore ...
Arctic climate change: observed and modelled temperature and sea-ice variability
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2004-07-09)
Changes apparent in the arctic climate system in recent years require evaluation in a century-scale perspective in order to assess the Arctic's response to increasing anthropogenic greenhouse-gas forcing. Here, a new set ...
Resistance and heat-transfer laws for stable and neutral planetary boundary layers: old theory advanced and re-evaluated
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2005-07)
The planetary boundary layer (PBL) resistance and heat-transfer laws express the surface fluxes of momentum and heat through the PBL governing parameters. Since the late sixties, the dimensionless coefficients (A, B and ...
An ERS 1 synthetic aperture radar image of atmospheric lee waves
(American Geophysical Union, 1994-11-15)
An ERS 1 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image of the island Hopen shows a distinct 7.6-km wavelength wave phenomenon near the island. This wave phenomenon is interpreted as the surface imprint on open water of atmospheric ...
Coastal ocean fronts and eddies imaged with ERS 1 synthetic aperture radar
(American Geophysical Union, 1996-03-15)
ERS 1 C band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data were collected during the Norwegian Continental Shelf Experiment (NORCSEX) both in November 1991 during the ERS 1 commissioning phase and at different seasons in 1992 and ...
