    Some important concepts of the SEASAT-SASS program are described and some of the decisions made during the program as to methods for relating wind to backscatter are discussed. The radar scatterometer design is analyzed along with the model function, which is an empirical relationship between the backscatter value and the wind speed, wind.

Seasat was the first Earth-orbiting satellite designed for remote sensing of the Earth's oceans and had on board the first spaceborne synthetic-aperture radar (SAR).

The mission was designed to demonstrate the feasibility of global satellite monitoring of oceanographic phenomena and to help determine the requirements for an operational ocean remote sensing satellite or: NASA / JPL / Caltech.

SeaSat Mission — the world's first satellite mission dedicated to oceanography. Spacecraft Launch Mission Status Sensor Complement Success Statement References.

SeaSat (also referred to as SeaSat-A prior to launch and SeaSat-1 after launch) is a pioneering Earth observation experimental mission of NASA/JPL; the first ever civilian spaceborne imaging radar instrument (SAR) was flown on SeaSat. One of the earliest Earth-observing satellites, Seasat was designed to test various oceanographic sensors and gain a better understanding of Earth's seas.

Seasat operated in Earth orbit for days, measuring sea-surface winds and temperatures, wave heights, atmospheric liquid water content, sea ice features and ocean topography, before a Author: NASA/JPL. The narrator of The Seas lives in a tiny, remote, alcoholic, cruel seaside town.

Seasat had a free and open data policy; and after a very slow start, the experiment team concept (where team members had a lengthy period of exclusive access to the data) for the Nimbus-7 CZCS was replaced with that same policy. Given access to the data, delays were due to a combination of sorting out the algorithms for converting the satellite.

The SEASAT satellite launched by United States on Jun. 28, began the evolution of space-based SAR that continues to this day (McCandless and Jackson, ). A synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system operated with an L-band ( GHz), HH polarization, and a fixed incident angle was first launched into the space as an important payload.

SeaSat Launched inSeaSat was a NASA/JPL Earth Observation experimental mission, which had onboard the first ever spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system for science applications.

During its brief day lifetime, SeaSat collected more information about the oceans than had been acquired in the previous years of shipboard. Seasat was the second satellite carrying a synthetic aperture radar (SAR). It was the first designed for remote sensing of the Earth's oceans. The mission was designed to demonstrate the feasibility of global satellite monitoring of oceanographic phenomena and to help determine the requirements for an operational ocean remote sensing satellite system.

O SEASAT (ou Seasat), [1] de origem Norte americana, foi o primeiro satélite de sensoriamento remoto projetado para atuar sobre os oceanos, e levava a bordo o primeiro Radar de Abertura Sintética (SAR).

O satélite foi operado pela NASA e gerenciado pelo Jet Propulsion Laboratory (). A missão tinha como objetivos genéricos: demonstrar a viabilidade de uma monitoração dos fenômenos.

The SAR is emphasized, covering the imaging of ocean waves, Fourier transforms of SAR wave imagery, and SAR imagery of internal waves, slicks, and streaks. The results of comparing wind and wave fields from SEASAT sensors and JASIN ships are summarized.
