Abstract

In this study, we analyze 83 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images including 73 from RADARSAT-1 and 10 from ENVISAT that contain tropical cyclone eye information. We also obtain ancillary tropical cyclone intensity information from NOAA National Hurricane Center and Japan Meteorological Agency. Based on this information, we generate tropical cyclone morphology statistics. We found that majority of the hurricanes are in wavenumber 1 and 2 category. Marine atmospheric boundary layer rolls can also be extracted from SAR image.
