The proposed inversion method consists of a hybrid global and local optimization method and a physics-based bistatic scattering forward model.  ...  The forward model was developed for bare-to-densely vegetated terrains, and it predicts the circularly polarized BRCS DDM of the land surface.  ...  the radar was operational, NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR) [7] , the Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface (AirMOSS  ...
