—A four-component scattering model is proposed to decompose polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. The covariance matrix approach is used to deal with the non-reflection symmetric scattering case. This scheme includes and extends the three-component decomposition method introduced by Freeman and Durden dealing with the reflection symmetry(More)
Polarimetric SAR interferometry has been widely studied for forest observations. The technique utilizes polarization state difference among local scattering centers of the forest to decompose them. Using the method, we can estimate precise forest parameters. We proposed an alternative method based on the ESPRIT algorithm for the estimation. The method can(More)
A young man with repetitive deep venous thrombosis of the legs and the inferior vena cava, and his family were eventually diagnosed by means of molecular genetic analysis as having both hereditary protein C and protein S deficiency. There have been a few reports of families with combined protein C and protein S deficiency and only one report of such a(More)
