Advanced Wind Retrievals From SAR Images at CSTARS

While the European Space Agency (ESA) provides SAR-derived wind fields over the ocean together with Sentinel-1 SAR imagery, users have to apply their own algorithms to retrieve wind products from SAR images from other satellites.

TerraSAR-X Radargrammetry Products From Airbus Defence and Space

The University of Miami group received first radargrammetry results from industry partner Airbus Defence and Space in December. These land topography products are based on a set of SAR images of the area on the Florida panhandle where Hurricane Michael made landfall in 2018. The test images were acquired between August 26 and September 1, 2021, as reported earlier.

Hurricane Michael (2018) Imaged by Sentinel-1 SAR

The European satellites Sentinel-1A and -1B acquire synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images of coastal regions of the U.S. on a regular basis, and they can be programmed to acquire additional images at times of hurricanes and similar events of interest. The European Space Agency makes all Sentinel-1 imagery available to interested users in near real time, free of charge. Together with the radar intensity images, derived wind fields are provided.
