Paper Abstract

This paper presents the progress toward marine applications of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data and a review of the SAR satellite program in China. The technique development includes the development of algorithms and of methodology for extracting oceanographic parameters from SAR data. Marine applications range from environmental monitoring to oceanographic research. Two series of SAR satellites have been planned. The first SAR satellite of the Environmental and Disaster Monitoring Satellite series (HJ series) will be launched in 2009 while the first SAR satellite of the Ocean SAR Satellite series (HY-3 series) is in planning phase. A description is given of the instruments and their plateforms.
