Golden age of SAR?
Thursday, 28.10.2021 at 14:00 CEST(12 p.m. UTC)
Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data availability has increased tremendously in recent years thanks to open data policy of large swath satellites (e.g. Sentinel-1) and many other satellites providing data commercially. So, are we in the golden age of SAR? Or do we still have ways to go? In this talk, we will go over where we stand, and what the foreseeable future holds, with a closer look at what NASA missions will be bringing to the table.
Batuhan Osmanoglu is a Research Physical Scientist at NASA-GSFC, holds a Ph.D. in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry. He has been a part of Istanbul Technical University, University of Miami, University of Alaska Fairbanks, and he has worked on applications for observing surface deformation, measuring target velocities, and radar design. He is the PI for the airborne SWESARR instrument. He serves as one of the NISAR Deputy Application Leads, candidate architecture deputy-lead for Surface Deformation and Change mission study, and one of the Disasters Program coordinators at GSFC.
