Abstract
The Synthetic Aperture Radar SAR is an active radar which emits its energy in the centimetre frequencies. Due to the large orbital velocity of the satellite (7.5km s¿1) approximately, the path of the antenna itself may be converted as a virtual antenna of a much larger size. The SAR instrument may also be installed on a plane, or on a helicopter. The SAR backscattering depends on the roughness of the small scale surface of the ocean. When the surface is rougher (mostly due to capillary waves in...
