Abstract

This paper describes a method of processing marine radar signals for the purpose of generating phase-resolved surface elevation maps as well as statistical measures of ocean surface wave fields. The method is well suited to the processing of data collected by marine radars because it allows for the incorporation of effects dependent on the radar look direction relative to the propagation direction of ocean waves. Applications to Doppler radar and backscattered power measurements are described, and example results are presented using simulated radar data.
