Coastal and Marine Applications of Wide Swath SAR
Volume 21, Number 1 (January–March 2000)

NOAA asked The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory to organize a symposium. The symposium was held in the KossiakoffCenter on 23–25 March 1999. Nearly 100 participantscame from seven countries; 37 presentations were de-livered, and 24 of those presentations evolved into thearticles published herein.
