– This paper discusses the capability of spaceborne polarimetric C-band SAR data for sea ice detection and classification. Unsupervised classification using polarimetric decomposition and the complex Wishart classifier was performed on SIR-C data acquired off the coast of Newfoundland in April 1994. The algorithm is used for sea ice applications for the(More)
/ RESUME When RADARSAT-2 is in operation it will be the first commercial spaceborne sensor capable of providing fully polarimetric data. The difference from airborne polarimetric data is mainly due to different sensor specifications and the differences in altitude. Using the airborne data, we simulate RADARSAT-2 standard and fine mode polarimetric data of(More)
