Acoustic seafloor sediment classification using self-organizing feature maps

B. Chakraborty; R. Kaustubha; A. Hegde; A. Pereira IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, 2001

A self-organizing feature map (SOFM), a kind of artificial neural network (ANN) architecture, is used in this work for continental shelf seafloor sediment classification. Echo data are acquired using an echosounding system from three types of seafloor sediment areas. Excellent classification (~100%) for an ideal output neuron grid size of 15×1 is obtained for a moving average of 35 input ...


Comparison of microwave backscatter with optically-derived cross sections from wind-generated waves in a wavetank

M. R. Keller; B. L. Gotwols; W. J. Plant; W. C. Keller Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, 1994. IGARSS '94. Surface and Atmospheric Remote Sensing: Technologies, Data Analysis and Interpretation., International, 1994

Microwave backscatter from wind-generated waves at intermediate incidence angles has been theoretically shown to be proportional to the spectral density of Bragg-resonant gravity-capillary and capillary waves. Explicit proof would be provided by direct measurement of the shortwave spectrum combined with calculations of the expected returns for a given microwave frequency and incidence angle. To obtain shortwave spectra independently, the authors ...


Joint magnitude and phase properties of numerically simulated highresolution VV- and HH-polarized X-band Sea backscatter over wide range of incidence angles

Jakov V. Toporkov; Mark A. Sletten 2014 IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, 2014

Joint properties of high-resolution coherent sea surface backscatter at different polarizations are studied using two-dimensional (2-D) direct numerical simulations based on a first-principles boundary integral equation technique. The quantities considered include the joint probability density function for HH and VV intensities and the distribution for the phase difference between the two polarization channels. Various distribution moments and polarimetric parameters such ...

  • Coherence in Multiple Scattering and Diagram Method

    This chapter presents an introduction to "backscattering enhancement". It outlines the basic idea of enhanced backscattering in turbulence. Enhanced backscattering occurs in many areas of engineering including scattering from particles, rough surfaces, and turbulence. It is related to "retro reflectance" or "opposition" effects, and observed enhanced backscattering by soils and vegetation. Concerning the enhanced backscattering due to turbulence, a question may be asked about the relationship with power conservation. The conservation of power requires that the enhanced backscattered power needs to be balanced by the decrease of power. It is expected that the enhanced backscattering can occur, not only in turbulence, but for rough surfaces as well. The enhanced backscattering from rough surfaces is important in several applications, including the study of surface plasmon localization in rough‐metal surfaces, phonon localization, and ocean acoustic applications. Finally, the chapter presents simplified heuristic discussions of interesting coherent phenomena in multiple scattering.
