TerraSAR-X for Oceanography – Mission Overview


The uses of TerraSAR-X system for oceanographic application are discussed. The system has polarimetric and interferometric capabilities as well as very high spatial resolution. These capabilities make it a valuable tool for wind, wave, current measurement, and morphodynamic changes in the oceanography. It is observed that its relatively short revisit time of 11 days also makes TerraSAR-X useful in the monitoring of oil disaster accidents.
