A mixed coniferous forest stand located near Howland, Maine, has been modeled a t SAR frequencies (P-, L-, and C-bands). A NASA/JPL multiple-view angle, multiple-frequency SAR was flown aboard a DC-8 aircraft on September 2, 1989. The extensive measurements of ground truth and canopy geometry parameters were performed in a 200 m-square hemlock-dominated plot inside the forest. About 10% of the trees were sampled to determine a distribution of diameter at breast height (DBH). Four representative… CONTINUE READING
