Abstract

Ocean internal waves are dangerous for sailing ship, submarine and offshore platform. Since internal waves distribute in large-scale region in space domain, researches focus on detecting spatial characters of internal waves by remote sensing technologies recently, such as using satellite images. However, most of the satellites travel along their default tracks, it is not easy to obtain continuous images of internal waves. This paper presents the results of applying a marine X-band radar to be the internal wave observation instrument that can obtain continuous internal waves images. It is composed of the hardware device and the image process technology. This paper present the image process method to enhance internal wave features from radar backscatters. In year 2005, this instrument was installed on a fisher boat and successful detected a moving Internal Wave at South China Sea. MODIS satellite image and in-situ profile data of sea temperature are used for validation. By the introduction of this study, it is shown that a simple, cheap and theoretical base instrument was developed for ocean internal wave detecting
