Abstract

This paper addresses the potential and limitations of Pol-InSAR inversion techniques for quantitative forest parameter estimation in tropical forests. By making use of the unique data set acquired in the frame of INDREX-II campaign - including Pol-/InSAR, Lidar and ground measurements - over typical Southeast Asia forest formations. The performance of Pol-InSAR inversion is assessed primarily at L- and P-band but also at higher frequencies, namely X-band. Critical performance parameters such as the �visibility of the ground� at L- and P-band as well as temporal decorrelation in short time repeat-pass interferometry are discussed and quantitatively assessed. Inversion performance is validated against Lidar and ground measurements over different test sites.
