Final Report - MONRUK (Monitoring the marine environment in Russia, Ukraine and Kasakhstan using satellite synthetic aperture radar)

Project ID: 31001
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final activity report of the Monruk project which received funding from the Sixth Framework Programme to develop and implement satellite Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems to monitor the marine environment of Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. For this purpose, satellite SAR images for the Barents and Kara Seas, the Black and the Caspian Sea were collected to develop and develop dedicated algorithms for the retrieval of ocean and sea ice parameters. In addition to SAR data, optical, infrared and scatterometer data have been used to estimate the sea surface temperature, ocean colour and surface wind. This document provides an overview of the work performed and the results achieved.
