Academic title: Academician


The significant wave height (SWH) is an important component of the marine environment, which has been widely used in the deep ocean process modeling. Traditional in-situ or altimetry can achieve SWH, but have high cost or limited spatial resolution. Nowadays, Global Navigation Satellite System-Reflectometry (GNSS-R) can obtain various information on the reflecting surface, particularly space-borne Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) mission. In this paper, SWH is estimated using the power function relationship between SWH and Delay-Doppler Map Average (DDMA) from CYGNSS data. Then, the SWH estimated by CYGNSS data is validated and evaluated by ERA-Interim data and AVISO data. The results show that the average correlation coefficient of CYGNSS SWH is 0.912 and the average RMSE is 0.363 m when compared to the ERA-Interim SWH data. The RMSE is 0.441 m and the correlation coefficient reaches 0.863 when compared with the AVISO SWH.
