Abstract

Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems in L-band and P-band are characterized by deep penetration capabilities into volumes, enabling new opportunities for the radar remote sensing of forests. In the last years, the interest has been continuously growing in the estimation of the sub-canopy topography, especially by exploiting multibaseline (possibly polarimetric) SAR data. This work intends to contribute on this topic by presenting further experiments with real L-band data about ground topography estimation and by quantifying the obtained performance. Different forest scenarios are considered. Potentials and limitations are analyzed with particular reference to a multibaseline relaxation-based algorithm.
