The first book to describe the process of deriving geophysical information from polarimetric radar measurements systematically Based on several decades of research conducted at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Synthetic Aperture Radar Polarimetry describes the application of polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) to Earth remote sensing/5(3).This book combines, for the first time, the topics of radar polarimetry and interferometry.

This combination was first developed in and has since become a major topic in radar sciences and their applications, in particular to space sciences.

In its simplest form it concerns the study of interferograms formed by combining waves with different polarisations and their exploitation to. The recent launches of three fully polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) satellites have shown that polarimetric radar imaging can provide abundant data on the Earth’s environment, such as biomass and forest height estimation, snow cover mapping, glacier monitoring, and damage assessment.
