Abstract

Basic boundary layer theory combined with ERS-1 SAR image, and surface meteorological data, analysis suggest the existence of a land breeze footprint off the New Jersey Coast The image time combined with the horizontal extent and intensity of the backscatter regime in question qualitatively conforms with the boundary layer thought model of a land breeze. This qualitative evidence is partially supported by routine meteorological wind and temperature data. However, it is obvious that more ground truth is needed to prove without a doubt that the hypothesis is correct.
