A simple strategy to mitigate the aliasing effect in X-band marine radar data: numerical results for a 2D case

Sensors (Basel). 2011;11(1):1009-27. doi: 10.3390/s110101009. Epub 2011 Jan 18.


For moderate and high speed values of the sea surface current, an aliasing phenomenon, due to an under-sampling in the time-domain, can strongly affect the reconstruction of the sea surface elevation derived from X-band radar images. Here, we propose a de-aliasing strategy that exploits the physical information provided by the dispersion law for gravity waves. In particular, we utilize simplifying hypotheses and numerical tests with synthetic data are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the presented method.

Keywords: X-band radar; aliasing problem; reconstruction approach.
