Iceberg detection Iceberg properties Physical mechanisms of icebergs Backscattering SAR polarimetry Climate change

My current PhD focuses on remote sensing of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) to detect icebergs in the Arctic and Antarctic and understanding the backscattering mechanisms that different iceberg properties may induce, thus affecting the image acquisition/resolution. In the wider picture this research is important because icebergs are huge hazards to ships and maritime influences, and climate change is likely to result in a higher flux of icebergs. In particular, the project focuses on polarimetric SAR analysis of icebergs.
