Abstract. During the joint U.K./U.S.A. experiment conducted in the Loch Linnhe, Scotland, U.K., in 1989, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) multifrequency airborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) was deployed to investigate the relation between the SAR images and ship-generated internal waves. One of the intriguing results, consistent throughout the experiment, was the striking difference in phase (position) between the images of internal wave wakes in the P-band ( 68cm) wavelength and those in L-band ( 24 cm) and C-band ( 6 cm) wavelengths. An explanation for this difference is found in the sensitivity of different radar wavelengths to oceanic surface waves in different ranges of wavelengths, that are perturbed by varying surface currents by different amounts and at different positions, depending on the wavelength of surface waves.
