Modeling the effects of topography on delay-Doppler maps

James D. Campbell, Amer Melebari, Mahta Moghaddam
2020 IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing  
A method for simulating delay-Doppler maps (DDMs) of global navigation satellite system signals reflected from land surfaces with heterogeneous terrain is developed from first principles.  ...  The method accounts for the displacement of reflected power into bins of lower delay due to raised surface terrain.  ...  Gleason for their guidance on how to register the delay and Doppler of each CYGNSS DDM bin. Finally, he is grateful to R. H. Chen for his assistance with soil parameters from  ...
