Abstract

Two methods were used to determine the characteristics of the interior ocean dynamics from radar signatures of internal solitary waves (ISW) visible on synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. The first method involved the recognition and the interpretation of sea surface pattern of ISW. The second method involved the analysis of the modulation depth of the normalized radar cross section associated with ISW. A data set composed of SAR and in situ measurements from 1991 to 1997 in the Strait of Messina region was considered. Numerical simulations was performed using a radar imaging model. The internal wave varied with seasonal variations in the vertical density stratification and to remotely-induced variations in the horizontal density distribution.
