Measurement of the parameters of internal and swell waves by a side-looking radar
A procedure for computing the parameters of internal and swell waves based on the radiopanorama of the sea surface obtained from on board a ship in the side-looking regime using the dispersion equation is suggested. Compared with the procedure of ref. 1, it simplifies the methods of measurements. Specific examples of computing the swell and internal wave parameters using radiopanoramas of the sea surface are considered which support the efficiency of the procedure suggested.
