Abstract

A readily computable formula to perform versatile analysis of the nonstationary pulse-to-pulse correlation properties of ocean altimeter returns is presented. Using this formula, the correlation coefficient and correlation interval depending on the reference time, sea state, and system parameters have been analyzed. The results have suggested that the pulse repetition frequency should adaptively be adjusted to the sea state to ensure precise altitude measurements.
