SummaryThis work will investigate the capabilities of high resolution spaceborne X-band SAR systems to analyse those coastal wind sea wave fields in presence of strong winds. In addition, different wave system conditions will be analysed (e.g. bimodal sea states composed by superposition of swell and wind sea) in order to derive nonhomogeneous features of wave fields in shallow waters in two dimensions (e.g. azimuth and range coordinates). The capabilities of dual polarization data (VV and HH) for wave analysis will be analysed. An exhaustive intercomparison and validation with in situ data will be carried out.
