Scanning synthetic aperture radar (ScanSAR) systems provide continuous information over large areas, but for effective use of such products in tropical forest, the decrease of radar backscatter with large variation of incidence angles requires attention. This letter analyzes the dependence of radar backscatter on incidence angle for L-band ScanSAR images of tropical forest. We investigated and modeled the angular backscatter effect per land-cover class in three ScanSAR images of the Colombian… CONTINUE READING
