TITLE: Spatial resolution enhancement of microwave radiometer measurements


Presented by: Prof. Ferdinando Nunziata, Dipartimento di Ingegneria, Università degli Studi di Napoli Parthenope.

ABSTRACT: Microwave radiometer products call for a spatial resolution that, although adequate for meso-scale applications, is too coarse for regional-scale studies. Hence, spatial resolution enhancement techniques are needed to generate added-value products suitable for regional-scale studies. Methods have been proposed to enhance the spatial resolution of single-pass radiometer measurements by solving the related ill-posed inverse problem in both Hilbert and Banach spaces. Spatial resolution enhancement leads to an underdetermined problem that, from a mathematical viewpoint, implies that no unique inverse operator exists; therefore, additional constraints must be imposed on the sought solution.

In this talk, after a brief overview of the challenges associated to the spatial resolution enhancement problem, an overview of recent developments in the Hilbert and the Banach spaces are provided and showcased on actual microwave radiometer measurements.


About the Speaker: Ferdinando Nunziata has been Associate professor of applied electromagnetics at University di Napoli Parthenope since 2019 and he has been working on applied electromagnetics and microwave (active and passive) remote sensing since 2005. He co-authored more than 100 scientific articles on these topics. He is IEEE Senior Member, Associate Editor of IEEE JSTARS and MDPI Remote Sensing journals, member of the Cosmo-SkyMed Mission Advisory Group, and he has been involved in the organization of thematic sessions and conferences related to microwave remote sensing.

In Memoriam: Neil P. Riggs, P. Eng. (1948–2023)

Co-Founder of IEEE NL OES Chapter and Former IEEE NL Executive Member, Neil Riggs passes away at 74

The IEEE NL community is grieving the passing of Neil P. Riggs at the age of 74. A pioneering figure in oceanic research and engineering in Newfoundland and Labrador, Neil was part of the beginnings of the Newfoundland Oceans Research and Development Corporation (NORDCO) and an integral part of the development of commercial underwater acoustics projects in Newfoundland.

Neil was a dedicated volunteer of the IEEE NL Section, being one of the two founders of the NL chapter of the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society, serving multiple times as its chair between 2010 and 2019. Neil was also a member of the executive committee in the IEEE International Oceans 2014 conference, held in St. John’s. He was also a keynote speaker in the 2018 edition of the annual Newfoundland Electrical and Computer Engineering Conference (NECEC).

Funeral arrangements and memorial service details can be found at Carnell’s website. The engineering community is invited to pay their respects and share their memories of Neil P. Riggs, a true pioneer and advocate of innovation in oceanic engineering.
