    A low-power portable data acquisition system presently in use for geomagnetic measurements is described. The system is composed of a data-processing system containing a low-power microprocessor, a 9-track digital tape recorder, and a rechargeable battery pack. The magnetometer is a low-power three axis fluxgate design. Under program control the data processing system keeps track of time of day and... View full abstract»

    Distortions in received signals in solar occultation measurements made from space arise as a result of the systematic motion of the electro-optical sensor. In a wide range of cases, the motion-related signal distortions caused by the instrument's full modulation transfer function are as important as those from the optics. This paper demonstrates by simulation that existing techniques in the field ... View full abstract»

    A time-dependent energy budget model was designed to enable the prediction of the temperature of terrain scene elements that contain a simple layer of vegetation and to diagnose the effect of vegetation on remotely sensed temperatures. The model was developed for use as a module in conjunction with existing nonvegetated-terrain temperature models. Vegetation was assumed to be a horizontally homoge... View full abstract»

    Texture is an important spatial feature useful for identifying objects or regions of interest in an image. While textural features have been widely used in the analysis of a variety of photographic images, they have not been used for processing radar images. In this paper, we present a procedure for extracting a set of textural features for characterizing small areas in radar images and show that ... View full abstract»

    A microprocessor-controlled instrument for digitizing multichannel, frequency modulated (FM) signals from a Plessey [1] Model 9400 conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) probe has been developed. This instrument features high resolution (24 bits), good accuracy (±31 ppm) and rapid digitizing rate (10 measurements per second). Particular care has been taken regarding the interfacing of the instrumen... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this paper is to make the Mendel/Kormylo minimum-variance deconvolution (MVD) procedure, that is based on a state-space model of a signal distortion system and is derived from estimation theory, more accessible to users and potential users. The following aspects of their MVD procedure are covered: how to obtain the order and parameters in a state space model of a signal distortion s... View full abstract»
