Bias in Copolar Correlation Coefficient Caused by Antenna Radiation Patterns

  title={Bias in Copolar Correlation Coefficient Caused by Antenna Radiation Patterns},
  author={Michele Galletti and Dusan Zrnic},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
We present a theoretical study of the bias in the copolar correlation coefficient caused by cross-polar radiation patterns and by unmatched horizontal and vertical copolar radiation patterns. The analysis of the bias induced by cross-polarization radiation is carried out for both modes of operation of polarimetric radars, designated as the simultaneous transmission and reception of horizontally and vertically polarized waves and the alternate transmission of horizontally and vertically… CONTINUE READING
