Abstract

We study the problem of subsatellite calibration of a side-looking radar (SLR) of the Sich-1M satellite regarded as an instrument for the evaluation of the velocity of surface wind and discuss the possibility of application of the meteorological and wave parameters measured from the stationary oceanographic platform of the Experimental Department of the Marine Hydrophysical Institute (Ukrainian Academy of Sciences) for their evaluation in the remote regions of the sea. These regions can be observed with the help of the SLR without errors introduced by the appearance of the coast in elements of space resolution. To prove the indicated possibility experimentally, we perform simultaneous measurements of the water and air temperatures, wind velocity, and the characteristics of waves both from the platform and in the water area neighboring with the platform on the side of the sea at distances of up to 4.8 km. The quantitative estimates of the degree of space uniformity of the analyzed parameters are deduced under the conditions of stable inshore wind. A conclusion is made that the platform can be used for subsatellite measurements aimed at the validation and improvement of the algorithm of reconstruction of the velocity of surface wind by using the SLR of the Sich-1M satellite.
