Polarisation: Applications in Remote Sensing

Shane Cloude


This book is concerned with the exploitation of polarisation effects in electromagnetic wave scattering for applications in remote sensing. It combines, for the first time, the topics of scattering polarimetry and interferometry, and is written in three main sections. In the first four chapters it provides detailed coverage of all major topics of polarimetry, including its basis in electromagnetic scattering theory, the topic of decomposition theorems, and a detailed analysis of the entropy/alpha approach to characterising polarisation effects. In the next chapter it provides a brief introduct ... More

Keywords: Polarisation, Scattering, Interferometry, Polarimetry, Polarimetric Interferometry, Remote Sensing, Radar
