Multi-temporal, multi-incidence ASAR WSM data over Siberia were used to derive land cover information. In an initial step several hundred ASAR WSM scenes were integrated into a database. Then the backscattering characteristics (signatures) of different land cover types were investigated. Based on the results, methodologies to retrieve land cover classes… CONTINUE READING
