SAR Interferometry and Applications

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is used from airplanes and from space
to image the surface of the earth.
This ends up producing an image of reflected amplitude and phase.
If we image from 2 different locations we can get 2 images from which
we can compute the heights of surface features, similar to the stereo
vision provided by our two eyes.
I will introduce this sensing methodology, and then give some examples
of how we are using it to estimate forest parameters.

Leland has been at the University since coming here as a freshman in
He received his PhD from the Radlab in 1991, and has been working as
a research scientist in the area of SAR image processing ever since.
