Two-Polarization Radar

Function

Studies of the sea surface in the coastal area and for support of satellite observations.

Description

Two-polarization high resolution radar with digital interface forms radar images, with which following tasks can be solved:
  1. measurements of spatial-frequency spectra of sea waves,
  2. measurements of the surface currents,
  3. determination of an interchange of energy between the ocean and the atmosphere from to the observations of the surface wave breaking,
  4. detection of sea surface pollution,
  5. determination of the sea bottom topography.
During 19992005 the instrument was used in a number of field experiments. In the present time the coherent radar is developed with the range resolution less then 0.5 m and ability to measure the Doppler spectra of backscattered by the sea surface signals.
