POLinSAR 2009, The 4th International SAR Workshop

December 3rd, 2008 Category: Earth Observation, Events

The 4th International Workshop on Science and Applications of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry - POLinSAR 2009

The European Space Agency is organising POLinSAR 2009, the 4th International Workshop on Science and Applications of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry, which will be hosted in ESRIN, Frascati, Italy on 26-30 January 2009.


Objectives

The main objectives of the workshop are to:

  • Provide a forum for scientific exchange and to initiate and encourage close collaboration between individual research groups
  • Exploitation of spaceborne missions
  • Present new results from the latest studies in the field and to assess the state-of-the-art
  • Present polarimetric and interferometric results from ALOS PALSAR, RADARSAT-2 and TerraSAR-X
  • Assess the available Pol-InSAR tools and datasets
  • Review the bio-geophysical parameters that can be retrieved and their accuracy
  • Make recommendations for algorithm development and new products, future missions and applications
  • Report on progress/status of recommendations of PolInSAR 2007

The workshop will focus on theory and methods in the fields of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry around the following theme:

  1. SAR Polarimetric Interferometry (Pol-InSAR)
  2. Theoretical Modelling
  3. Applications of SAR Polarimetry
    • Land: Forest, Agriculture, Environment (Urban, global change, land cover), Wetlands
    • Ocean: Pollution Monitoring, Ship detection, Ocean Parameters Retrieval, Sea Features
    • Cryosphere: Snow, Land Ice and Sea Ice Monitoring
    • Hazards: Fire Monitoring, Volcanoes, Flooding, Earthquake
  4. Polarimetry and Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI)
  5. Compact Polarimetry
  6. ALOS PALSAR, TerraSAR-X, RADARSAT-2, COSMO-SkyMed results
  7. Future Spaceborne missions for Pol-InSAR
  8. Airborne Pol-InSAR campaigns
