Relative phase calibration of the NASA/DC-8 three-frequency polarimetric SAR systemRelative phase calibration of radar polarimetry data may be achieved by utilizing the phase information of the receiver calibration tone and knowledge of the antenna path differences among channels measured upon installation of the radar polarimeter. This calibration method does not require any assumptions on the scattering behavior of the scene. This method of phase calibration may be verified by examining the polarization signatures of calibration instruments such as the trihedral corner reflectors.
