The polarimetric cross-talk calibration algorithm proposed by Quegan, which is more general than the one proposed by van Zyl, is modified to improve polarimetric SAR calibration. L-band polarimetric SAR data acquired by the JAXA/NICT Airborne Pi-SAR, including a variety of natural and artificial targets, are calibrated introducing noise imbalance of cross-polarized channels into the Quegan algorithm and deriving the cross-talk parameters from areas with low correlation between like and cross-polarized observed echoes. The achieved enhancement in stability of cross-talk parameter estimation and removal over is demonstrated in terms of CR response analysis and polarimetric classification result.
