Polarimetric and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar ; a new way to quantify three-dimensional structure of Earth and planetary surfaces

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

The PolInSAR technique is designed to greatly improve estimates of forest biomass and ecosystem 3D structure . This application is also of special interest in the study of permafrost and analogs of planetary surfaces using radar. We will develop a new estimation technique to quantify three-dimensional radar scattering mechanisms using Polarimetric and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (PolInSAR) measurements with GSFC's newly developed DBSAR and later ECOSAR.This study will employ a three phased approach: SAR image formation and calibration. DBSAR polarimetric and interferometric data analysis. PolInSAR algorithm development, validation and extension.
