In this study the sensitivity of COSMO-SkyMed (CSK) dual-polarimetric HH/VV Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data with respect to sea, vegetated and urban areas is investigated. A dual polarimetric feature, namely the complex correlation between the co-polarized channels, is introduced to exploit the inherent peculiarities of the CSK incoherent dual-polarization PingPong mode for distinguishing the three scenarios. The dual-pol feature is contrasted with the correlation between the HH and VV amplitudes, the co-polarized ratio and with conventional single-pol ones, namely the HH and the VV intensity.

Abstract

In this study the sensitivity of COSMO-SkyMed (CSK) dual-polarimetric HH/VV Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data with respect to sea, vegetated and urban areas is investigated. A dual polarimetric feature, namely the complex correlation between the co-polarized channels, is introduced to exploit the inherent peculiarities of the CSK incoherent dual-polarization PingPong mode for distinguishing the three scenarios. The dual-pol feature is contrasted with the correlation between the HH and VV amplitudes, the co-polarized ratio and with conventional single-pol ones, namely the HH and the VV intensity.
