Ground Based Remote Sensing of the Sea Surface
Design of novel analysis techniques for the high resolution (10s - 100s of metres) mapping of waves, currents and bathymetry and othe roceanographic effects using data from coastal X-Band Radar systems. Also the use of such data in long term monitoring of such sites. See the web page on bathymetry (depth) mapping.
Development of analysis techniques for the analysis of high resolution acoustic systems.
Development of signal analysis techniques to extract oceanographic data from novel high resolution acoustic systems including a 3-axis bistatic coherent Doppler current profiler, and also high resolution sea bed scanning sonar systems. See the SEDbed page.
