Analysis of scattering behavior and radar penetration in AIRSAR dataA technique is presented to physically characterize changes in radar backscatter with frequency in multifrequency single polarization radar images that can be used as a first step in the analysis of the data and the retrieval of geophysical parameters. The technique is automatic, relatively independent of the incidence angle, and only requires a good calibration accuracy between the different frequencies. The technique reveals large areas where scattering changes significantly with frequency and whether the surface has the characteristics of a smooth, slightly rough, rough, or very rough surface.
