This report revisits the role of the extinction coefficient in radar backscattering-based models for forest monitoring. A review of a number of works dealing with this issue has revealed a diversity of extinction values being unclear its dependence on the sensor frequency and the forest type. In addition, a backscattering model directly derived from the RVoG formulation is employed to analyse the saturation of backscattering level as a function of vegetation height and the presence of a… Expand
