Mapping sub-tropical vegetation using multi-frequency, multi-polarization SAR dataIn 1990 the NASA/JPL airborne synthetic aperture radar DC-8 (Airsar) was flown over an area in northern Belize and the surrounding countries of Guatemala and Mexico. The three-frequency polarimetric radar signatures of a variety of natural areas have been extracted, and many have a unique radar signature. Scattering mechanisms which may explain these signatures and results of an image classification technique are presented.
