Use of SIR-B multiincidence-angle imagery to study iceberg detectability and offshore ocean feature extractionThe Shuttle Imaging Radar B (SIR-B) iceberg experiment is described and expected results are outlined. The specific objectives are: (1) to study the L-band satellite SAR detectability of iceberg targets as a function of incidence angle and observed conditions; (2) to compare L-, X-, and C-band aircraft imagery, and to use this data as a basis for an appropriate simulation of satellite imagery and to compare with SIR-B images; and (3) to determine the possibility of comparive available surface or near surface currents with estimates of the range component of surface current derived from the SIR-B data (IOS experiment).
