A Multistatic GNSS Synthetic Aperture Radar for Surface Characterization

Tore Lindgren; Dennis M. Akos IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, 2008

Bistatic global navigation satellite system (GNSS) radar has received increased attention in recent years within both the radar and GNSS communities. In this paper, the traditional bistatic GNSS radar and bistatic synthetic aperture radar (SAR) concepts are fused into a more generic multistatic GNSS SAR system for surface characterization.

Duk-jin Kim; David R. Lyzenga IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, 2008

A new method for estimating the atmospheric transmittance and wind speed over the ocean from WindSat data is derived using a simplified model for the ocean surface reflectivity. The simplified reflectivity model is used to calculate both the surface emissivity and the reflection of downwelling atmospheric radiation. The wind-speed dependence of the surface reflectivity is parameterized using simple rational functions ...

How Wind Affects Passive Microwave Measurements of Sea Surface Temperature

Andrew S. Milman IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, 1987

Uncertainty in the wind speed is a major source of error in passive microwave measurements from satellites of sea surface temperature (SST) because of the non-linear relationship between sea surface emissivity and wind speed. The accuracy of the SST measurement that can be achieved with only passive microwave measurements was assessed by computer modeling. Our investigation showed that the second-order ...

    More than half the globe is covered by visible clouds. Clouds control major parts of the Earth's energy balance, influencing both incoming shortwave solar radiation and outgoing longwave thermal radiation. Latent heating and cooling related to cloud processes modify atmospheric circulation, and, by modulating sea surface temperatures, clouds affect the oceanic circulation. Clouds are also an essential component of the global water cycle, on which all terrestrial life depends. Yet clouds constitute the most poorly quantified, least understood, and most puzzling aspect of atmospheric science, and thus the largest source of uncertainty in the prediction of climate change. Because clouds are influenced by climate change, and because complex, unidentified feedback systems are involved, science is faced with many unanswered questions. This volume begins by indentifying and describing the baffling nature of clouds. It explores the boundaries of current knowledge on the spatial/temporal variability of clouds and cloud-related aerosols as well as the factors that control clouds, and examines the extent and nature of anthropogenic perturbations. Particular emphasis is given to the connections of clouds to climate through radiation, dynamics, precipitation, and chemistry, and to the difficulties in understanding the obvious but elusive fact that clouds must be affected by climate change. Utilizing the insights of this unique gathering of experts, the book offers recommendations to improve the current state of knowledge and direct future research in fields ranging from chemistry and theoretical physics to climate modeling and remote satellite sensing.

  • Efficient computation of the Bayesian CramerRao Bound on Estimating Parameters of Markov Models

    This paper presents a novel method for calculating the Hybrid Cramer-Rao lower bound (HCRLB) when the statistical model for the data has a Markovian nature. The method applies to both the non-linear/non-Gaussian as well as linear/Gaussian model. The approach solves the required expectation over unknown random parameters by several one-dimensional integrals computed recursively, thus simplifying a computationally-intensive multi-dimensional integration. The method is applied to the problem of refractivity estimation using radar clutter from the sea surface, where the backscatter cross section is assumed to be a Markov process in range. The HCRLB is evaluated and compared to the performance of the corresponding maximum a-posteriori estimator. Simulation results indicate that the HCRLB provides a tight lower bound in this application.

  • Global Indirect Radiative Forcing Caused by Aerosols: IPCC (2007) and Beyond

    Anthropogenic aerosols are thought to exert a significant indirect radiative forcing because they act as cloud condensation nuclei in warm cloud-forming processes and ice nuclei in cold cloud-forming processes. Although many of the processes associated with the perturbation of cloud microphysics by anthropogenic aerosols were discussed, IPCC (2007) provided only an estimate of full quantification of the radiative forcing attributable to the first indirect effect (which they referred to as the cloud albedo effect). Here we explain that this approach is necessary if one is to compare the radiative forcing from the indirect effect of aerosols with those from other radiative forcing components such as that from changes in well-mixed greenhouse gases. We also highlight the problems in assessing the effect of anthropogenic aerosols upon clouds under the strict definitions of radiative forcing provided by the IPCC (2007). Although results from global climate models, at their current state of development, suggest that an analysis of indirect aerosol effects in terms of forcing and feedback is possible, a key rationale for the IPCC's definition of radiative forcing, a straightforward scaling between an agent's forcing and the temperature change it induces, is significantly compromised. Feedbacks from other radiative forcings are responses to radiative perturbations, whereas feedbacks from indirect aerosol effects are responses to both radiative and cloud microphysical perturbations. This inherent difference in forcing mechanism breaks down the consistency between forcing and temperature response. It is likely that additional characterization, such as climate efficacy, will be required when comparing indirect aerosol effects with other radiative forcings. We suggest using the radiative flux perturbation associated with a change from preindustrial to present-day co mposition, calculated in a global climate model using fixed sea surface temperature and sea ice, as a supplement to IPCC forcing
