Advances in Land Remote Sensing: System, Modeling, Inversion by Shunlin (Ed.) Liang, Shunlin Liang

By Shunlin (Ed.) Liang, Shunlin Liang

This e-book collects the overview papers from either technical classes and 3 dialogue panels of the ninth overseas Symposium on actual Measurements and Signatures in distant Sensing (ISPMSRS). It systematically summarizes the prior achievements and identifies the frontier concerns because the examine schedule for the close to destiny. It covers all facets of land distant sensing, from sensor structures, actual modeling, inversion algorithms, to varied purposes. The papers on distant sensing approach evaluation the features of other sensor platforms for estimating key land floor variables and the way they could top be enhanced and built-in successfully sooner or later. Papers on modeling and inversion evaluate the cutting-edge methodologies on actual modeling and the inversion algorithms for estimating a chain of land floor variables. The papers on distant sensing software investigate the present prestige of assorted functions and talk about how greater to bridge the advance of remote-sensing technological know-how and expertise and useful functions. Representing the group attempt and contributed via a workforce of overseas major specialists, this integral reference booklet for graduate scholars and practitioners of distant sensing additionally aids these engaged in educational learn, executive and industry.

Included is a CD-ROM containing the complete color pictures that are published in Black and White within the book.

Example text

For a flat area, both illumination area and incidence angle of a pixel can be reasonably estimated so that the backscattering coefficient can be obtained. Topographic effects on radar images can be considered as two aspects: (1) the effects on received radar power, which result from a great variation in illuminated area and incidence angle for a pixel resolution. It can be described as the variation of the received power from an inclined surface compared to the received power from a horizontal surface.

7 cm and correlation length <25 cm. 2 shows the comparison between the field snow wetness measurements (x-axis) and the derived snow wetness from C-band polarimetric SAR data of SIR-C (black squares) and AIRSAR (white triangles) at the study site around Mammoth Mountain, California during the first SIR-C/X-SAR mission in April, 1994. Those included eight snow pits and two transects. The SAR-inferred snow wetness values were obtained from an average value of 3 × 3 windows around the snow pit locations.

Those included eight snow pits and two transects. The SAR-inferred snow wetness values were obtained from an average value of 3 × 3 windows around the snow pit locations. Snow wetness measurements from transects were also averaged to 100 m scales and the inferred snow wetness from SAR was determined from a mean value of 4 × 2 windows along the transect measurements. Most SAR-derived snow wetness agreed well with estimates of snow wetness. 5% error bars at 95% confidence interval for absolute error.
