Abstract
A method for wind speed retrieval is developed by applying fitting techniques with the ratio of signal to noise. The method is applied to the wind speed retrieval from the nautical radar images. And we get a correlation coefficient of 0.88 and RMS error of 1.34m/s by comparing the data from the radar and in-situ data. The results show that this method can be used to estimate the wind speed.
