    Abstract

    Satellite imagery and data have been used to investigate the spatial distributions of wind speed and some terrain surface characteristics in the Gulf of Suez. The methods and the results are described in three separate sections: 1. “Comparing SAR winds and in-situ winds”. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data derived from the European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS) have been used to make wind speed maps for the Gulf of Suez. 2. “Land cover from Landsat TM imagery”. Landsat Thematic Mapper(TM) data have been used to establish true- and false-colour land cover maps, as well as land cover classification maps. 3. “Reporting on satellite information for the Wind Atlas for Egypt”. Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR) data from the European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS) have been used to map the sea- and land-surface temperatures and albedos.
