Abstract

Remote sensing of vegetation structure is an important component of biomass measurement and ecosystem modeling. A set of parameters describing Gaussian vegetation profiles were estimated from multialtitude, multifrequency radar interferometric and polarimetric data. This data set consists of vertical-polarization interferometry at three radar altitudes, 8 km, 4 km and 2 km at C-band (5-cm wavelength) and L-band (25 cm) and full polarimetry at C-, L- and P-(80 cm) bands. A description of the simple physical model used to estimate vegetation profile parameters is presented.
