Novel Synthetic Aperture Radar Development and Analysis
The Faculty of Engineering at The University of Auckland has a rapidly growing interest in radar remote-sensing for monitoring of the Earth’s processes, including the design and utilization of existing space-borne, airborne, and ground-based systems. PhD opportunities are offered for students to work in multidisciplinary international research projects supporting algorithm development, campaign participation and data analysis for proof-of-concept efforts and in support of possible new Earth-science space and/or suborbital missions.
This research will require the PhD candidate to understand electromagnetic scattering theory and practice, interact with science teams, participate in field campaigns, analyse and process collected data to address campaign objectives. This specific effort will be part of an international multidisciplinary collaboration for which the candidate will be engaged in synthetic aperture radar development, deployment, data analysis and terrestrial measurement retrievals.
