Abstract
    The ocean wave imaging capabilities of an airborne single pass cross track interferometric SAR (InSAR) are studied by analyzing data acquired in February 1997 over the North Sea. Digital elevation models (DEM) of the sea surface Showing ocean waves are investigated and compared to the corresponding conventional SAR intensity image. A theory for the InSAR imaging mechanism is developed and forward simulations for the interferogram as well as for the conventional SAR intensity image are performed. Distortions of the DEM, due to non-linear imaging effects are analyzed. The SINEWAVE (SAR Interferometry Experiment for validation of ocean Wave imaging models) experiment to further investigate the cross track INSAR ocean wave imaging is described.
