—From its launch in 2006, the phased array L-band synthetic aperture radar (PALSAR) onboard the advanced land observing satellite (ALOS) has acquired many dual-polarized (FBD) images with a 70-km swath width, aiming to produce spatially consistent coverage over tropical rainforest. This paper investigates the relevancy of PALSAR orthorectified FBD product(More)
The relationship between ocean wind vectors and L-band normalized radar cross sections (NRCS) is comprehensively examined to propose an L-band model function by using the Phased-Array L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR) and scatterometer wind data. Based on more than 90,000 match-ups, the L-band NRCS dependence on wind speed, incidence angle, and(More)
The relationship between ocean wind vectors and L-band normalized radar cross sections (NRCS) is examined using the Phased-Array L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR). We used PALSAR ScanSAR images with a wide range of incidence angles from 17º to 43º. More than 6,000 match-ups, each consisting of the NRCS, incidence angles, wind speeds and wind(More)
