Paper Abstract

This paper was to assess the reliability of RADARSAT-2 quad-polarization SAR data in rice mapping and yield estimation. Five scenes of RADARSAT-2 images were acquired in the rice season of 2011 in Jiangsu Province, China. Ground experiments were conducted in accordance with the acquisition dates. For rice mapping, optimal dual-polarization combination was obtained by ratio change detection. The accuracy of rice mapping by HV/HH reaches 79.2% and by VV/HH reaches 84.9%. For rice yield estimation, an improved scheme based on assimilation method has been put forward. ORYZA2000 model was coupled with an empirical rice backscattering model to simulate the dual-polarization ratios. SCE-UA optimization algorithm is employed to determine the optimal set of input parameters during the re-initialization process. As a result, an improved accuracy has been confirmed.
