In this letter, fully polarimetric (FP) and compact polarimetric (CP) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) features are investigated over the sea surface. While exhibiting similar trends, subtle differences are observed and investigated here using a new model-based approach. The model indicates that differences between the FP and CP architectures, and among the CP modes, are due to the difference in mapping between the polarimetric observables and the eigenvalues. This is verified using actual FP SAR data and emulated CP SAR measurements.

Abstract

In this letter, fully polarimetric (FP) and compact polarimetric (CP) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) features are investigated over the sea surface. While exhibiting similar trends, subtle differences are observed and investigated here using a new model-based approach. The model indicates that differences between the FP and CP architectures, and among the CP modes, are due to the difference in mapping between the polarimetric observables and the eigenvalues. This is verified using actual FP SAR data and emulated CP SAR measurements.
