Abstract
We present scaling applications of coastal SAR images in the NW Mediterranean Sea. The distribution of meso-scale vortices of size, related to the Talwegs, to the local Rossby deformation scale and other dominant features can be used to distinguish dinamical features in the ocean surface. Multi-fractal analysis is then very usefull. The SAR images exhibited a large variation of natural features produced by winds, internal waves, the bathymetric distribution, by convection, rain, etc as all of th...
