Abstract

Tropical rain forest environments are highly complex and heterogeneous in terms of species composition and structure and is often difficult to access. Radar remote sensing is for large tropical regions the only available information source for monitoring. Pol-InSAR is a novel developed radar remote sensing technique sensible to the vertical structure of forest that allows the estimation and mapping of forest height. In this paper we demonstrate forest height inversion at two frequencies - L Band and P Band by means of Pol-InSAR using INDREX-II data and addresses the problem of temporal decorrelation
