Title Name Email Project Name Project Description Requirements
Prof. James L. Garrison Earth Remote Sensing using Signals of Opportunity This research project will involve the assembly and test of a instruments for Earth remote sensing using “reflectometry”, which is based upon observing changes in the structure of a radio frequency signal reflected from the ocean surface. These changes are related to the air-sea interaction process on the ocean surface and can be used to estimate the wind speed through empirical models.  Electrical engineering or applied physics,
Students should have a solid background in signal processing. Excellent programming skills in C and MATLAB. Some knowledge of electromagnetic wave propagation and the mathematics or stochastic processes/random variables highly desirable. Hardware experience also highly desirable.
