Abstract

In contrast to conventional imaging radars, along-track interferometric synthetic aperture radars (ATI) are directly sensitive to scatterer motions, which makes them a promising tool for oceanic surface current measurements. In this paper we present some new model developments and theoretical predictions. We discuss the capabilities and limitations of current measurements by ATI, and we compare advantages and disadvantages of this method with those of techniques based on conventional radar imagery.
