Title: Inversion of Moisture Content of Forest Canopy and Floor from SAR Data
Authors: Moghaddam, M.
Saatchi, S.
Issue Date: 1996
Citation: Innsbruck, Austria
Abstract: Several scattering mechanisms contribute to the total radar backscatter cross section measured by the synthetic aperture radar. These are volume scattering, trunk-ground double-bounce scattering, branch-ground double-bounce scattering, and surface scattering. All of these mechanisms are directly related to the dielectric constant of forest components responsible for that mechanism and their moisture.
