Kurzfassung

Polarimetric SAR data are coherent by nature of the principle of operation. However, most often incoherent ap-proaches are chosen for the post-processing in order to apply conventional averaging and statistical methods. For this purpose, covariance and coherency matrices are typically formed from the complex raw data, and a va-riety of incoherent analysis and decomposition methods have been proposed for the further information extrac-tion. Alternatively, the complex data may be used on a pixel by pixel basis to extract information at the highest possible resolution. By the latter approach, absolute phases have to be taken into account, and straightforward averaging of the coherent quantities cannot be applied. However, it is still possible to perform averaging of indi-vidually extracted real parameters, and as we shall show, the coherent data can indeed be averaged after proper phase normalization. In this work, we have considered both coherent and incoherent approaches for the purpose of quantitatively comparing the utility of the various approaches. The analysis procedure is based on a series of classification tests on many different polarimetric parameters derived after applying the different theoretical methods. Several classification methods have been applied, and hence, the work comprises a comparison of the classification potential of different polarimetric descriptors as well as a comparison of the performance of differ-ent classifiers for the type of data under investigation. Data from the Danish EMISAR have been used.
