Paper Abstract

This paper presents a methodology for monitoring vegetation in the Pays de Brest using new series of Sentinel-1 satellite images combining with Sentinel-2 and SPOT-6. This work consists of establishing an interferogram method of the main types of vegetation in order to achieve the coherence of a multi-temporal Sentinel-1 radar image series, in SLC format (C band, VV and VH polarization), between 2015 and 2016. We then proceed to calculating the radar backscatter coefficient based on Sentinel 1 images in GRD format. Multi-date and multipolarized color compositions will be made to detect changes. It also shows the importance of data synergy to obtain an excellent accuracy using Random Forest classification.
