This study aims to analyze the capability of the target decomposition techniques and the polarimetric ratios applied to the ALOS/PALSAR-2 satellite polarimetric images to discriminate the land use and land cover classes in the Tapajós National Forest region, Pará State. Three full polarimetric ALOS/PALSAR-2, level 1 single look complex scenes were selected to generate the coherence and the covariance matrices to derive the Cloude-Pottier and the Freeman-Durden target decomposition attributes… CONTINUE READING
