SAR Polarimetry Tutorial

This tutorial is for the undeterred reader who really wants (or has to) actually use polarimetry for SAR applications. It covers most aspects of SAR polarimetry (i.e. wave polarization, polarimetric description of scatterers, target decomposition, applications, etc.).

Martin Hellmann

Fuzzy Logic Introduction

Brief and basic introduction to the concept of fuzzy theory illustrated with an example (fuzzy classification of fully polarimetric SAR data)

Martin Hellmann

Synthetic Aperture Radar - Basic Concepts and Image Formation

Introduction in the image formation process and basic concepts of synthetic aperture radar. Includes also some practical exercises (processing of a small SAR raw data set).

Andreas Reigber

SAR Interferometry - An Introduction

Presentation made for the TMR SAR interferometry workshop held in Rennes/France 03.-07. April 2001. Its tries to outline the way from a conventional SAR image to a digital elevation model.
