—In this paper, we present numerical simulations and indoor bistatic scattering measurements on scaled targets. The targets are vertical and/or tilted dielectric parallelepipeds representing the main forest elements (tree-trunks and primary branches) at VHF and low-UHF frequencies. They are placed above an aluminum circular plate to simulate a flat ground.(More)
In this paper, an electromagnetic scattering model based on the electric field integral representation is used to separate the scattering mechanisms involved in the interaction of an electromagnetic field with forested areas. This model is used to examine the different coupling effects between the main scatterers (trunks and branches) and those between the(More)
The interpretation of SAR data remains particularly difficult in the case of forests. Interferometric or/and polarimetric studies may enable us to retrieve some characteristics of the forest and identify the relevant scattering mechanisms involved in the global scattering phenomenon. A lot of numerical models have been developed to make the retrieval of(More)
