Among the several factors which may affect the quality of interferometric SAR products, volume decorrelation represents the coherence loss contribution due to the presence of multiple scatterers within a single resolution cell, which results in an increase of the interferometric phase uncertainty. In this letter we investigate the effects of volume decorrelation on X-band TanDEM-X interferometric data. TanDEM-X is the first bistatic space-borne SAR mission and provides a unique, global, and manifold interferometric data set to be exploited for a variety of scientific and commercial applications. The main goal of this paper is to provide the scientific community with a characterization of volume decorrelation effects occurring at X-band for different land cover types and acquisition geometries. The potentials of volume decorrelation contribution at X-band for land classification are discussed as well and some application examples are presented.
