POLinSAR 2021 Objectives

  • Provide a forum for scientific exchange
  • Present the latest exploitation results from full-pol airborne and spaceborne systems and assess the state-of-the-art
  • Review retrieved bio-geophysical parameters and their accuracy
  • Make recommendations for algorithm development and new products
  • Support the preparation for ESA and Third Parties full-pol missions exploitation (BIOMASS, NOVASAR-S, RCM, SAOCOM, TerraSAR-L etc.)
  • Present innovative polarimetric applications and ideas for future polarimetric mission concepts Report on the status of POLinSAR 2019 recommendations
PolInSAR 2021 Sessions
  • Methods and Theoretical Modelling
  • Calibration and Validation
  • SAR Polarimetry
  • Compact/Hybrid Polarimetry
  • Bistatic Polarimetry
  • Tomography
  • SAR Polarimetric Interferometry (Pol-InSAR)

  • – Ocean: Pollution Monitoring, Ship Detection, Parameters Retrieval;
  • – Cryosphere: Snow, Land Ice and Sea Ice;
  • – Hazards: Fire Monitoring, Volcanoes, Flooding, Earthquake;
  • – Other Applications (e.g. Urban)
  • Past, Current (eg. ALOS-2, Sentinel-1, GF-3, RISAT) and Future SAR Missions (e.g. BIOMASS, NovaSAR-S, RCM, SAOCOM, NISAR, TerraSAR-L)
  • Airborne and Spaceborne campaigns
