Radar Polarimetry-Potential for Geosciences

  title={Radar Polarimetry-Potential for Geosciences},
  author={Franziska Kersten},
The ability of Radar Polarimetry to obtain information about physical properties of the surface has led to many innovative applications in geoscientific research and concerning environmental issues. In the first part the advantages of polarimetric radar data are presented based on a review of conventional radar systems and single-channel Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). Radar Polarimetry allows the estimation of surface parameters of geoscientific interest such as surface roughness and soil… CONTINUE READING
