    A method is presented to optimize the height coverage of virtual temperature profiles using the Radio Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) on a 45-MHz monostatic wind profiler. It has already been shown that the main limitation in the maximum height coverage for VHF radar is the effect of wind that...

    Existing focusing techniques for Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) rely on migration of 2D or 3D images to remove clutter originating from objects laterally offset from the antenna. In applications requiring real-time focusing, a method operating on 1D trace data is required. This paper presents a...
