Abstract
This study examines the potential applications of polarimetric SAR interferometry (Pol- InSAR). Pol-InSAR combines the capabilities of polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) for target classification with interferometric SAR (InSAR) for height discrimination. In this report, the Pol-InSAR literature is first reviewed. Then, two field trials in Ottawa and Petawawa in 2002 are described in which Pol-InSAR data were acquired using Environment Canada’s Convair-580 C-band SAR in repeat-pass mode. Calibration and processing of the data are detailed. Finally, data analysis and potential application are discussed, particularly in view to the upcoming RADARSAT-2 and PALSAR missions.
