This letter deals with the sea state monitoring starting from marine radar images in the X-band. For such a topic, one of the key factors affecting the reliability of reconstruction procedure is the determination of the equivalent surface current that also accounts for the velocity of a moving ship. In this letter, we propose a method to evaluate the surface current, particularly for large values. The reliability of the proposed procedure is shown by a numerical analysis with synthetic data. Subsequently, we present some preliminary results with experimental data collected by a radar on a moving ship.
