The following two images (and animation) shows the processed synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data acquired before and after the explosion of the Anak Krakatau volcano. The two SAR data were acquired on two different satellite passes (ascending and descending respectively).
Following the explosion a landslide into the ocean of part of the volcano and the island led to a tsunami (concentric waves around the island can be seen in the after image). The two images are followed by an animation and a video.
After a successful launch in May 5, 2018 the Insight mission sent to Mars to explore Mars’ interior structure is planned to land on November 26, 2018. The interesting part is the mission landing will be monitored by two cube satellites that were launched with Insight and have been traveling on their own since the launch as show in the launch video below. The landing can be watched live on Nov. 26, 2018.
Considered as the bible on microwave, radar/SAR remote sensing I had to have a copy of this compendium written by pioneers in the field. One of the images puts the 1000 page book to scale.
I am currently a full-time Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Research and Development (R&D) Engineer.
I remain interested in and open to collaborations and research work. If you are interested in academic or industry-/business-oriented collaborations or partnerships please get in touch.
