Nonlinear Ocean Dynamics: Synthetic Aperture Radar delivers the critical tools needed to understand the latest technology surrounding the radar imaging of nonlinear waves, particularly microwave radar, as a main source to understand, analyze and apply concepts in the field of ocean dynamic surface. Filling the gap between modern physics quantum theory and applications of radar imaging of ocean dynamic surface, this reference is packed with technical details associated with the potentiality of synthetic aperture radar (SAR). The book also includes key methods needed to extract the value-added information necessary, such as wave spectra energy, current pattern velocity, internal waves, and more. This book also reveals novel speculation of a shallow coastal front: named as Quantized Marghany's Front.

Rounding out with practical simulations of 4-D wave-current interaction patterns using using radar images, the book brings an effective new source of technology and applications for today’s coastal scientists and engineers.

Key Features

  • Solves specific problems surrounding the nonlinearity of ocean surface dynamics in synthetic aperture radar data
  • Helps develop new algorithms for retrieving ocean wave spectra and ocean current movements from synthetic aperture radar
  • Includes over 100 equations that illustrate how to follow examples in the book


Coastal Scientists and researchers, postgraduate students, Physical Oceanographers
