We have converted a conventional synthetic aperture radar system into an imaging radar polarimeter by employing two orthogonally polarized antennas and recording both the amplitude and absolute phase measurements of the received electric fields. This enables us to measure the complete complex scattering matrix for each individual resolution element in the radar image. The Stokes matrix, derived from the scattering matrix, is then used to synthesize the scattering coefficient for any desired… CONTINUE READING
