Ionosphere irregularities along the synthetic aperture generate shifts and blurring that cause decorrelation. In this paper it is shown how, by partially focusing SAR images to the height of the ionosphere, it is possible to reduce the ionospheric azimuth effects and increase the coherence. This permits, even in case of turbulent ionosphere, to obtain better accuracies when separating the deformations phase from the ionospheric phase using the delta-k split-band interferometry method.
