Paper Abstract

The time-dependent Mueller matrix solution of vector radiative transfer for inhomogeneous random media of non-spherical scatterers is presented. Co-polarized and cross-polarized bistatic scattering for a polarized pulse incidence are numerically simulated. Numerical results well demonstrate volumetric and surface scattering mechanism and depict the inhomogeneous fraction profile of random scatterers. Effective canopy height inverted from the pulse echo is discussed. Numerical simulation shows detection of anomalous scatters under inhomogeneous canopy.
