Abstract

The theoretical model developed in this study allows to simulate the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and the along track Interferometric SAR (INSAR) imagery of a monochromatic ocean wave. The model accounts for the effects of the real-aperture radar (RAR) modulation of the radar backscatter cross-section. Comparison of the SAR and INSAR imaging systems applied to the wave system under consideration shows that the phase component of the interferometric SAR is less sensitive to the RAR modulation as compared with the regular SAR.
