Soil and Vegetation RADAR analysis

Lecturer

Nima Ahmadian

ECTS

5 ECTS

 

Aim

The participants will get familiar with the methological skills and processing chain for the analysis of polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) and Polarimetric SAR Interferometry (PolInSAR) data.

 

Content

The module encompasses the following practical topics:

  • Processing of sentinel-1 radar SLC and GRD data for retrieving the biophysical parameters of different crop types and soil.
  • Processing of quad pol (full polarization) of RADARSAT2 satellite data and AIRSAR full polarimetric photogrammetric data acquired by airplane to get familiar with the decomposition concept.
  • Processing of Tandem-X bistatic mode to retrieve the forest height and biomass.
