In this research, non-linear two-dimensional ocean wave spectrum retrieved from TerraSAR-X dual polarization data is introduced. This algorithm needs first guess information from regional high resolution numerical wave model. Retrieved results are to be compared and validated to in situ measurements, i.e. WaMos X-band marine radar. The estimation of TerraSAR-X ocean wave imaging forward function for different polarizations, i.e. V/V and H/H will be assessed based on the validation results.
