C-Band Radiometric Response to Rainfall Events in the Subtropical Chaco Forest

Abstract

In this letter, multitemporal signatures collected by Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR-E) over the dry forest of Chaco, located in North Argentina, are analyzed. The forest has a biomass of about 100 t/ha and a woody volume of about 120 m3/ha. A clear increase of polarization index at C-band is observed after intense rain events in two different… (More)
