A methodology, example and accuracy assessment are given for a continental-scale mosaic of the Amazon River basin at 100 m resolution using the JERS-1 satellite. This unprecedented resource of L-band SAR data collected by JERS-1 during the low-flood season of the river amounts to a collection of 57 orbits of the satellite and a total of some 1500 1 k/spl times/1 kB images. Interscene overlap both in the along-track and cross-track directions allows common reference points to be used to correct…

TLDR
The method is used to orthorectify both high-water and low-water Global Rain Forest Mapping project SAR mosaics covering the entire Amazon basin, and shows that one-pixel positioning accuracy was achieved in both cases.
