    • A Ka-band Radar Interferometer: development and testing 

      Galobart Tor, Bruno (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 2013-07-11)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   University of Massachusetts at Amherst
      [ANGLÈS] Radar interferometry is a remote sensing technique that consists in transmitting a signal and measuring the phase difference of the reflected signal between two antennas separated by a baseline. This phase difference ...
    • Data processing of a polarimetric X-Band phased array weather radar 

      Vilardell Sánchez, Jezabel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-07)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   University of Massachusetts at Amherst
      Weather forecast estimation has been a matter of analysis for many years. The arrival of dual polarization radars meant an improvement due to the incorporation of new variables. This project illustrates how to obtain the ...
    • Design of a reflected power canceller for single-antenna FMC radars 

      Amézaga Sarries, Adrià (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Microwave Sensing Laboratory, 2013-12-10)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   University of Massachusetts at Amherst
      [ANGLÈS] Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave radars suffer from an undesirable effect called transmitter leakage. The power leak between transmitter and receiver due to the lack isolation impairs reception performance. The ...
    • Phased-Array Antenna Calibration and Cross-polarization improvement of an X-band Weather Radar 

      Masalias Huguet, Gerard (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   University of Massachusetts at Amherst
      Dual-polarized phased-array radars used for weather retrieval purposes is an emerging tendency over the last few years. The dual-polarization technology provides an expanded range of weather products and the reliability ...
    • Soil Moisture estimation using polarimetric SAR 

      Closa Tarres, Marc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-08)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   University of Massachusetts at Amherst
      La humedad del suelo es una variable primaria para comprender el ciclo hidrológico global. En las disciplinas de ciencias de la Tierra y del medio ambiente, la estimación de este parámetro en alta resolución siempre ha ...
