Paper Abstract

Polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) has been successfully applied for, terrain and land-use classification, soil moisture and biomass measurements, and many other areas of remote sensing. However, its application to ocean and coastal areas has not been developed fully. This paper describes several remote-sensing applications for the littoral zone using polarimetric SAR. SIR-C L-band and C-band images are used for illustration.
