Syllabus
1. THEORETICAL FUNDATIONS
Particles scattering. Rayleigh approximation. Mie scattering.
Atmospheric scattering models, atmospheric absorption models, spectroscopic databases.
Polarization and Stokes parameters.
Rough surfaces scattering in the microwaves domain.
Radar equation: concentrated target, surface scattering, volume scattering (meteorological targets).
Marine surfaces radar cross-section and sea state concerning wind and precipitation fields.
Hints of tropospheric propagation (eikonal equation, polarization transportation equation and energy transportation equation) and ionospheric propagation.
