Grant Program:
Discovery Projects
Grant Activity:
3D tomographic reconstruction of rainfall using satellite signals
Purpose:
This project aims to use the microwave communication links of low earth and/or medium earth orbit satellites to achieve three dimensional tomographic reconstruction of rainfall. The path loss of microwave signals due to rainfall, known as rain attenuation can be used to measure rain. Similar to using X-ray to carry out human-body CT scans. With the aid of advanced signal processing techniques, the proposed method will achieve 3D measurements with resolution and coverage unachievable before, paving the way for innovative water relevant applications such as hydrology and agriculture, and new findings in atmospheric research.
