Short CV |
ResearchMy research primarily deals with the scattering
of high frequency (HF) radiation from time-varying random rough surfaces.
In addition to fundamental theoretical work, I am particularly interested
in the application of HF surface wave radar (HFSWR) operating in an ocean
environment. With collaborators in private industry and government
agencies such as the department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Department
of National Defence, there has been interest in developing portable
HF radar systems.
The signal from shore-based HFSWR can be used
- detect and track targets well beyond the line-of-sight horizon.
- collect data which is useful in ocean surface parameter estimation.
This includes measurement of significant waveheight, wind and wave directions,
and vector surface currents.
Many interesting theoretical and
application-oriented problems are currently being addressed.
For nearly four decades, Memorial University has been a leader in this area.
My research and that of my colleagues, collaborators, and students continues to
build on the intensive activity in HFSWR at Memorial University. Over the years the Remote Sensing Group has expanded its suite of instrumentation to include X-band marine radar. Group interest in satellite remote sensing is also increasing.
Some of the the literature may be found in my
In conjunction with other researchers, I was involved in an Atlantic Innovation Fund project entitled High Frequency Radar Oceans Surface Applications (HF-ROSA). A rudimentary, partially developed web page for this project may be found at HF-ROSA.
During my graduate studies in Memorial University's
Engineering Discipline, I was associated with members
of the Remote Sensing Group at C-CORE.
This affiliation continues and from time to time I co-supervise graduate students working
