Airborne Weather Radar Concept for Measuring Water Surface Backscattering Signature and Sea Wind at Circular Flight

A concept for measuring water surface backscattering signature and wind over sea using airborne weather radar is discussed. The radar operates in the ground-mapping mode as a scatterometer, in addition to its meteorological and navigation application. An aircraft circular flight is used under such measurement. Recommendations to perform measurement of the water surface backscattering signature…
