Recently, there has been an increasing interest in compact polarimetry (CP), which helps to reduce the complexity, cost, mass, and data rate of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems while attempting to maintain many capabilities of a fully polarimetric system. In this letter, we provide a comparison of the capabilities of three conventional CP modes to distinguish different physical scattering mechanisms (PSMs) through H-α decomposition. A compact H-α space for dual circular polarimetric mode… CONTINUE READING
