Radiometric Approach for Estimating Relative Changes in Intraglacier Average Temperature

We investigate the degree to which ultrahigh frequency radio emission can be used to estimate subsurface physical temperature in the polar ice sheets. We combine electromagnetic emission forward models with plausible models of depth-dependent physical …

Dielectric Properties of Saline Soils and an Improved Dielectric Model in C-Band

To retrieve the soil salinity by microwave remote sensing, we must clarify the relation of dielectric properties of saline soils with soil salinity. The objective of this paper was to determine how dielectric properties are affected by soil salinity in…

Classification of Alaska Spring Thaw Characteristics Using Satellite L-Band Radar Remote Sensing

Spatial and temporal variability in landscape freeze–thaw (FT) status at higher latitudes and elevations significantly impacts land surface water mobility and surface energy partitioning, with major consequences for regional climate, hydrologica…

SAR-SIFT: A SIFT-Like Algorithm for SAR Images

The scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT) algorithm and its many variants are widely used in computer vision and in remote sensing to match features between images or to localize and recognize objects. However, mostly because of speckle noise, it do…

Analysis of Multistatic Pixel Correlation in SAR

The field of wireless communications has benefited from multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) techniques. As researchers seek to apply MIMO (multistatic) techniques to radar and specifically to synthetic aperture radar (SAR), a key factor in determ…

A New Framework for SAR Multitemporal Data RGB Representation: Rationale and Products

This paper presents the multitemporal adaptive processing (MAP3) framework for the treatment of multitemporal synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. The framework is organized in three major activities dealing with calibration, adaptability, and repres…

Downscaling Satellite-Based Soil Moisture in Heterogeneous Regions Using High-Resolution Remote Sensing Products and Information Theory: A Synthetic Study

In this study, a novel methodology based upon the information-theoretic measures of entropy and mutual information was implemented to downscale soil moisture (SM) observations from 10 km to 1 km. It included a transformation function that related auxil…

Indicator Cokriging-Based Subpixel Mapping Without Prior Spatial Structure Information

Indicator cokriging (ICK) has been shown to be an effective subpixel mapping (SPM) algorithm. It is noniterative and involves few parameters. The original ICK-based SPM method, however, requires the semivariogram of land cover classes from prior inform…
