Radar technology continues to find widespread use in the long range, all weather remote sensing of earth terrain. In this research, the use of polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images in the remote sensing of various terrains is studied, from which the soil moisture content is predicted. The terrains studied range from idealized flat surfaces to(More)
—Inverse scattering algorithms for reconstructing the physical properties of sea ice from scattered electromagnetic field data are presented. The development of these algorithms has advanced the theory of remote sensing, particularly in the microwave region, and has the potential to form the basis for a new generation of techniques for recovering sea ice(More)

Retrieval of the bianisotropic metamaterial The retrieval methods to compute the effective permittivity and permeability of metamaterials published so far deal with isotropic permittivity and permeability. However, it is known already that the metamaterials are intrinsically anisotropic because of the orientations of the rings and rods in space, and that(More)

Study and characterization of left-handed metamaterials Many of the basic properties of left-handed (LH) media are in constrast to those typically encountered in right-handed media. For example, using a rigourous plane wave analysis of propagation and transmission into a dispersive LH medium from a RH medium, we show that power refracts at a negative angle,(More)
In this work, we develop an image processing scheme to generate synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images from a rough surface terrain, which is specified by a digital elevation map (DEM), with large dihedral reflectors (e.g. tree trunks). Important in the analysis of such SAR systems is a knowledge of the electromagnetic characteristics of the target being(More)
