Forest Structure Retrieval from Multi-Baseline SARs [chapter]

Stefano Tebaldini
2012 Remote Sensing of Biomass - Principles and Applications  
Both 2D and 3D SAR imaging data may be regarded as specializations to the SAR case of the more general concept of Diffraction Tomography, widely exploited in seismic processing (5).  ...  As such, 3D focusing is analogous to the basic formulation of SAR Tomography (T-SAR), in which no particular assumption is adopted to describe the imaged scene (6).  ...  Forest Structure Retrieval from Multi-Baseline SARs, Remote Sensing of Biomass -Principles and Applications, Dr.  ...
