Observations of Cloud Properties Using the developed millimeter-wave FM-CW radar at 95 GHz, we observed clouds in a campaign observation in Amami Island in March , and on a sail on Mirai, a Japanese scientific research vessel, in September in the Arctic Ocean. Fig.7 shows an example of observed. Water vapor and oxygen absorption at millimeter-wave frequencies is much stronger than at microwave frequencies (Lhermitte ; Clothiaux et al. ; Li et al. ).Because water vapor and oxygen are highly concentrated in the lower troposphere, ocean surface measurements made from an airborne or spaceborne radar are attenuated by their by:

Continuous Wave (FM-CW) radar, employing real-time data acquisition and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques, has been developed for continuously recording the thickness profile of freshwater Size: 4MB.

An Airborne Millimeter-Wave FM-CW Radar for Thickness Profiling of Freshwater Ice [Norbert E. Yankielun] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. A prototype broadband millimeter wave ( to 40 GHz) Frequency Modulated-Continuous Wave (FM-CW) radar, employing real-time data acquisition and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques, was developed for continuously recording the thickness profile of freshwater ice.

Thickness resolution is better than 3 cm plus or minus 10 percent, which improves on short-pulse and FM-CW radars Cited by: 6. Get this from a library. An airborne millimeter-wave FM-CW radar for thickness profiling of freshwater ice.

[Norbert E Yankielun; Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (U.S.)]. A high-resolution, millimeter wave ( to GHz) Frequency Modulated-Continuous Wave radar with real-time data acquisition and digital signal processing and display capability was deployed from a low-flying ( m) helicopter to continuously acquire, process and display data during an ice thickness profiling survey of a km study reach.

A field-hardened, high-resolution, broadband millimeter wave ( to 40 GHz) Frequency Modulated-Continuous Wave (FM-CW) radar employing real-time data acquisition and digital signal processing. The remotely sensed mapping of freshwater ice thickness has been attempted with good success using high resolution airborne Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FM-CW) radars in the millimetre-wavelengths (Yankielun,Yankielun et al., ).Cited by: borne millimeter-wave (MNMW) FM-CWradarsys- Study * tem, capable of resolving a minimum ice thickness 2 Reach Alec Oc•an * of 3 cm ±10%.

While the capability to profile fresh-water sheet ice has been well established, the lack ofsimultaneous locationinformation has prevented km 40 the construction of ice cover maps -from these data.

Ellerbruch and Boyne () were the first to demonstrate that an FM-CW radar could be used to determine snow depth and stratigraphy, provided that the snow density (ρs) was available for estimating εs. Gubler and Hiller () extended the use to the detection of avalanche thickness and snow by: Snow depth was measured with an L-band frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar operating from an aerial tramway up to 70 m above the ground.

Snow depth, wetness, and slope varied greatly along the km transect, with m of by: None of these methods are continuous in space and time and all, except the airborne, also require a certain ice thickness, strong enough to carry the load of the equipment.

In many applications a method that works for any ice thickness and gives the ice thickness as a function of time would be : Bo Nordell, Göran Westerström. Development of an airborne millimeter-wave FM-CW radar for mapping river ice Article in Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering 20(6).

A prototype broadband millimeter wave ( to 40 GHz) FM-CW radar employing digital signal processing techniques has been developed for profiling the thickness of freshwater ice. The radar.

Ice Sheets to the Australian Antarctic Division is used to measure snow thickness over sea ice in East Antarctica.

Provided with the radar design parameters, the expected performance parameters of the radar are summarized. The necessary conditions for un-ambiguous identification of the air/snow and snow/ice layers for the radar are by: Sea ice has proven to be a crucial element in the climate and overall heat budget of the globe.

The behavior of sea ice is dependent on the presence of snow cover due to its impact on the thermal insulation and albedo of the system. An airborne FMCW radar was created to measure the depth of the snow over sea ice.
