Research and Markets: Synthetic Aperture Radar Polarimetry

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/62d673/synthetic_aperture) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Synthetic Aperture Radar Polarimetry" to their offering.

This book describes the application of polarimetric synthetic aperture radar to earth remote sensing based on research at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). This book synthesizes all current research to provide practical information for both the newcomer and the expert in radar polarimetry. The text offers a concise description of the mathematical fundamentals illustrated with many examples using SAR data, with a main focus on remote sensing of the earth.

The book begins with basics of synthetic aperture radar to provide the basis for understanding how polarimetric SAR images are formed and gives an introduction to the fundamentals of radar polarimetry. It goes on to discuss more advanced polarimetric concepts that allow one to infer more information about the terrain being imaged. In order to analyze data quantitatively, the signals must be calibrated carefully, which the book addresses in a chapter summarizing the basic calibration algorithms. The book concludes with examples of applying polarimetric analysis to scattering from rough surfaces, to infer soil moisture from radar signals.

Key Topics Covered:

  • Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Imaging Basics
  • Basic Principles of SAR Polarimetry
  • Advanced Polarimetric Concepts
  • Polarimetric SAR Calibration
  • Applications: Measurement of Surface Soil Moisture
