Transactions on Geoscience & Remote Sensing

About the Publication


The internationally subscribed monthly journal, Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (TGARS), publishes advances in sensing instruments and techniques used for the acquisition of geoscientific information as well as techniques for processing, enhancing and interpreting information derived from remote sensing instruments. Transactions on GRS is part of the basic service received with GRS membership or GRSS affiliation.

On the Processing of Very High Resolution Spaceborne SAR Data

This paper addresses several important aspects that need to be considered for the processing of spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data with resolutions in the decimeter range. In particular, it will be shown how the motion of the satellite duri…

Automatic Feature Learning for Spatio-Spectral Image Classification With Sparse SVM

Including spatial information is a key step for successful remote sensing image classification. In particular, when dealing with high spatial resolution, if local variability is strongly reduced by spatial filtering, the classification performance resu…

Exploiting Environmental Information for Improved Underwater Target Classification in Sonar Imagery

In many remote-sensing applications, measured data are a strong function of the environment in which they are collected. This paper introduces a new context-dependent classification algorithm to address and exploit this phenomenon. Within the proposed …

Corrections to the MODIS Aqua Calibration Derived From MODIS Aqua Ocean Color Products

Ocean color products such as, e.g., chlorophyll-a concentration, can be derived from the top-of-atmosphere radiances measured by imaging sensors on earth-orbiting satellites. There are currently three National Aeronautics and Space Administration senso…

The Impact of Radio-Frequency Interference on WindSat Ocean Surface Observations

To study the effects of radio-frequency interference (RFI) on remote sensing data, we examined five years of WindSat ocean observations from regions affected by reflected X-band emissions from geostationary communication satellites. We compared measure…

On the SAR Backscatter of Burned Forests: A Model-Based Study in C-Band, Over Burned Pine Canopies

A discrete scattering model, based on the radiative-transfer theory, is used to simulate the backscattering of burned pine canopies at C-band. The model is first parameterized either with direct field measurements on a selected burned area in Greece or…

Inverse Modeling of GPS Multipath for Snow Depth Estimation—Part I: Formulation and Simulations

Snowpacks provide reservoirs of freshwater. The amount stored and how fast it is released by melting are vital information for both scientists and water supply managers. GPS multipath reflectometry (GPS-MR) is a new technique that can be used to measur…

SAVERS: A Simulator of GNSS Reflections From Bare and Vegetated Soils

The mean power of the reflected Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals acquired by a GNSS-Reflectometry (GNSS-R) receiver can be modeled through the integral bistatic radar equation by weighting the contributions of all scatterers on the sur…
