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

    The quantized Marghany Front

    Prof. Marghany is establishing new field of science. It is first time I read such work compiles nonlinearity of the ocean dynamics with quantum mechanics and relativity besides radar image mechanics in imaging these nonlinearity features of ocean dynamics. There are many of questions need answers. One of these question and I think very critical: Do you think this quantized Marghany front could be found on the other sea basins or only exists and applicable to the Malaysian coastal waters?

    Congratulation Prof. Maged

    I know prof. Maged, I met him several times at ACRS conference, I was lucky to attend many of his great presentations. I agree with my world international colleges, he could be a little Einstein. I noticed that Maged now is trying to explain ocean dynamic features from the point view of quantum mechanics. Maged new theory "Quantized Marghany's Front" i think it is not first theory. Maged came by new theories in his previous writing one of these is 4-D. He proves that we are living in multidimensional through ocean dynamic features. Prof. Marghany I knew he suffered a lot to establish his own theories. Prof. Marghany helps many of his colleges and students even the universities where he attached previously but non did appreciate what this great scientist has done.

    A great Prof.Maged Marghany top two percent world scientists

    I would like to congratulate Prof. Marghany as I named him little Einstein for his two achievements. First to be ranked among top percent world scientists. Second for his novel theory "Quantized Marghany's Front". I understand that little Einstein " Marghany" invented a new theory in ocean dynamics me and all world scientists are looking for your new theory and your new book too.

    What is such a great work?

    I am exciting to read this book soon. I think Maged is delivering a novel explanation on nonlinear ocean dynamics through the point view of quantum mechanics.
