About the authors

Dr. Simon Kingsley is a lecturer at Sheffield University. He began a lifetime career in radar research with a PhD project that used radar to study the upper atmosphere. After a period as an advanced research fellow, he joined the Marconi Research Centre and led a group concerned with long range radar detection and tracking theory. In 1987 he joined Sheffield University to concentrate on the development of radar techniques, mainly for remote sensing. 

Dr. Shaun Quegan is Director of the Sheffield Centre for Earth Observation Science and leads its Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Research Group
