Abstract

Polarimetric SAR Interferometry (Pol-InSAR) is a powerful remote sensing method for forest height estimation by using the random volume over ground model (RVoG). At higher frequencies implementation of forest height estimation in X band is limited to less dense and low forest types where X band is able to penetrate through the volume to ground. However, the penetration depth at X band is sufficient to cover all forest types. In the paper height inversion at X band using two different approaches is demonstrated with focus on the impact of extinction on forest height estimation.
