Using the cross-spectral phase to filter slicks in the ENVISAT ASAR wave mode product
Abstract:An empirical filter has been developed that uses the phase of the ASAR cross spectrum to detect slicks in the ENVISAT ASAR wave mode product. The filter has been tested on a partition of a set of simulated ASAR cross spectra distributed by ESA. Results show that variations of the cross-spectral phase with wave number can effectively be used for detecting slicks in ENVISAT's wave mode product.
