Large-scale earthquakes severely damage people's lives and properties. Airborne and spaceborne remote sensing can be used accurately and effectively to monitor and assess earthquake disasters in near real time, providing an important scientific basis and decision-making support for government emergency command and postdisaster reconstruction. This letter proposes a new H-α-ρ method (H is the entropy, α is the average scattering mechanism, and ρ is the circular polarization correlation… CONTINUE READING
