Corresponding to the radar parameters given above, the characteristics of the radar returns can be specified below: the nominally maximum range ([R.sub.m] = cT/4[DELTA]tB, T is the FM pulse length) set for the radar observation is about 7500 km; the practical range extent that the radar echoes can be collected is from 12.9 km to 291.84 km; the range resolution ([DELTA]R = c/2B, c is light speed, B is bandwidth) of the radar returns at each range bin is 3.7 km; the time resolution of the observed radar returns is 1 s; the Nyquist frequency ([f.sub.Ny] = 1/T) of the observed Doppler radar spectrum is 0.5 Hz and the corresponding maximum Doppler velocity of the radar echoes that the radar can resolve is about 16.4 m/s.
The echoes are detected by the radar receiver to generate complex quadrature signal (i.e., in-phase and quadrature, I/Q in short, components) after passing through mixer and matched filter.
where [S.sub.i] and [S.sub.j] are, respectively, the autospectra of the ith and jth receiving channels, <[S.sub.i] [S.sup.*.sub.j]> is the ensemble averaged cross spectrum of [S.sub.i] and [S.sub.j] * represents complex conjugate, A is coherence defined as the modulus of the normalized <[S.sub.i] [S.sup.*.sub.j]> that signifies correlation of the echoes between [S.sub.i] and [S.sub.j], and [DELTA][[phi].sub.ij] is the phase difference of the echoes between ith and jth receiving channels that is defined below:
Note that the value of A tends to be small and fluctuates randomly in the spectral frequency domain for uncorrelated random noises or radar returns from diffusive targets distributed uniformly and randomly in echoing region, and its value is expected to approximate 1 for the echoes from highly localized and structured targets with high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).
However, for the echoes from diffusive targets or random noises, their phase differences between the receiving channels will not satisfy the above relations.
In general, the HF radar Doppler spectrum of the sea surface echoes is dominated by two prominent first-order spectral peaks generated from the backscattered radar returns from the ocean waves with a Bragg wavelength at one-half of the incident radar wavelength.
Therefore, it is anticipated from (5) that there are a number of combinations of the ocean wave vectors k and k' that can produce the second-order echoes. In light of the fact that the second-order echoes are resulting from the ocean waves with different propagating directions and wavelengths, their coherences are expected to be low in values and phase differences of the cross spectra are disorganized in the spectral domain.
In order to perform cross spectral analysis for obtaining coherence and phase difference of the radar echoes, a 10-24 sec time series (corresponding to a duration of 17 minutes) of the radar echoes at 1-sec time resolution at every range bin is first divided into 4 segments and each segment of the time series is analyzed by a 256-point FFT to obtain raw Doppler spectra.
Analogous to the sea echoes, Figure 1(a) presents examples of the Doppler spectra of the ionospheric echoes at ranges 150 km and 220 km, respectively, that occurred on October 28, 2015, at 15:58 LT.
As shown in Figure 1, the spectral bandwidths of the ionospheric echoes are so broad that they extend to a frequency range covering the Doppler spectral bands of the sea echoes.
Echo it maximizes the ad model by utilizing the very nature of the site, enabling advertisers to get the most out of their campaigns: corporations can give feedback on echoes and message consumers.
More at issue is to what extent the Maya were enamored of the quetzal and inclined to use their skills toward such goals as birdlike echoes. Edgerton says of Lubman's idea, "He's trying to make a lot out of the quetzal bird, which was much admired by the Maya, but mainly so they could kill it to get its tail feathers for their helmets."
