This paper describes a new two-scale polarimetric contrast model based on the Boundary Perturbation Model (BPM). The damping of the short gravity-capillary surface waves by small slicks is modelled by the Marangoni damping coefficient. The surface slick is supposed to modify both the short wave part of the sea surface spectrum intensity and the wind input. The model has been validated over SIR-C/X-SAR Multi Look Complex (MLC) L- and C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data.

Abstract

This paper describes a new two-scale polarimetric contrast model based on the Boundary Perturbation Model (BPM). The damping of the short gravity-capillary surface waves by small slicks is modelled by the Marangoni damping coefficient. The surface slick is supposed to modify both the short wave part of the sea surface spectrum intensity and the wind input. The model has been validated over SIR-C/X-SAR Multi Look Complex (MLC) L- and C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data.
