SAR Land Applications Tutorial


The aim of this tutorial is to introduce beginners to land applications of satellite remote sensing using synthetic aperture radar (SAR). It is intended to give students a basic understanding of SAR technology, the main steps involved in the processing of SAR data, and the type of information that may be obtained from SAR images. The tutorial has three main components:

  • Background and Theory – an overview of the principles behind SAR remote sensing, data processing techniques, examples of land applications, and current and future sources of SAR data
  • The Bilko Exercise - a computer practical using the Bilko software with ENVISAT ASAR data, allowing students to apply the theoretical knowledge to the processing and  interpretation of actual SAR data

Model answers to questions from both  parts of the tutorial.
