Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL)

The IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS is a monthly publication for short papers (maximum length 5 pages) addressing new ideas and formative concepts in remote sensing as well as important new and timely results and concepts.
Papers should relate to the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as applied to sensing the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, and the processing, interpretation, and dissemination of this information.
The technical content of papers must be both new and significant. Experimental data must be complete and include sufficient description of experimental apparatus, methods, and relevant experimental conditions. GRSL encourages the incorporation of “extended objects” or “multimedia” such as animations to enhance the shorter papers. As soon as papers are accepted and materials are available at IEEE, they will appear online through the IEEE digital library Xplore.

Partial Interferometric Processing of Reflected GNSS Signals for Ocean Altimetry

The bistatically reflected global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) signals have become an attractive tool for spaceborne ocean altimetry. The interferometric processing that can exploit the full bandwidth of the available GNSS signals without the kn…

The Use of a Mobile Laser Scanning System for Mapping Large Forest Plots

Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) has been demonstrated to be an efficient measurement method in plot-level forest inventories. A permanent sample plot in national forest inventories is typically a small area of forest with a radius of approximately 10 …

An Omega-K Algorithm for Highly Squinted Missile-Borne SAR With Constant Acceleration

This letter proposes an omega-K algorithm for missile-borne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) diving with constant acceleration. The essence of the novel method is to derive a reference function multiplication from the equivalent range history. The true r…

Radial-Trace Time–Frequency Peak Filtering Based on Correlation Integral

Time–frequency peak filtering (TFPF) has been widely applied to suppress the random noise in seismic data in recent years. Conventional TFPF adopts a pseudo-Wigner–Ville distribution to ensure the approximate linearity of the signal. Howe…

Application of Seismic Data Stacking in Time–Frequency Domain

Stacking is a fundamental concept that can be found in geosciences and seismic signal processing. The performance of random noise suppression and residual moveout correction by traditional amplitude-based stacking process is always far from satisfactor…

Impact of Orthorectification on Simulated Compact Polarimetric RCM Data With Accurate Lidar DSM

Orthorectification using digital terrain models is a key issue for polarimetric complex synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data because resampling the complex data can corrupt the polarimetric phase, mainly in terrain with relief. Orthorectification will b…

Logistic Regression-Based Spectral Band Selection for Tree Species Classification: Effects of Spatial Scale and Balance in Training Samples

In this letter, we evaluated the pixel-level and plot-level tree species classification of Scots Pine, Norway Spruce, and deciduous birch in a boreal forest using 64-band AisaEAGLE II hyperspectral data in a wavelength range of 400–1000 nm. Firs…
