Paper Abstract

In this paper we show how the entropy-alpha target decomposition scheme may be used for parametric inversion studies on particle clouds. The decomposition is first presented in detail and then applied to a 2-parameter model for backscatter from a random cloud of small anisotropic particles. The two parameters are the mean particle shape and the mean orientation angle of the cloud. An inversion algorithm is presented and applied to broad band polarimetric Radar data from the European Microwave Scattering Laboratory at JRC Ispra.
