Special Issue "Application of Shore-Based, Sky-Based and Marine Radars to Ocean and Target Parameter Extraction"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2024 | Viewed by 725
Interests: HF radar; ocean wave parameter and spectrum extraction; digital signal processing
Over 65 years ago, Crombie observed the backscatter from HF radar transmitting at 13.5 MHz from the ocean surface and observed two dominant peaks in the Doppler spectrum, which were caused by Bragg scattering. Since that time, radar has often been used ocean monitoring, with new methodologies being introduced to extract ocean wave spectra and tide and wind information from backscattered radar data. In addition to HF radar, marine radar often operating at X-band frequencies have been used to monitor oceanographic parameters at higher resolutions, but usually over shorter ranges. Both radar modalities may also be used to monitor the presence of targets, such as ships or ice, in the ocean, as well as exact parameters of these targets, such as size, speed, and location.
This Special Issue aims to present new and cutting-edge research in the monitoring of targets such as ships and ice and their oceanographic parameters using various radar configurations, including sky-based radar and hardware. It also aims to collate new signal processing algorithms and methodologies to improve the accuracy of ocean surface and target parameter extraction data acquired using such radar systems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
