TanDEM-X forms together with TerraSAR-X the first single-pass polarimetric interferometer in space. This allows for the first time the acquisition and analysis of Single-, Dual-, and Quad-Pol-InSAR data without the disturbing effect of temporal decorrelation globally. For this reason, the exploration of TanDEM-X data for forestry is constantly increasing especially concerning forest height estimation, biomass classification and structure characterization. This paper reports the results of recent experiments aimed at investigating the potentials of TanDEM-X in characterizing quantitatively the spatial variability of the canopy top and phase center height, which is a proxy to horizontal structure. It is shown that such characterization can allow to differentiate among e.g. different successional and / disturbance stages in tropical forests.
