Description

Synthetic aperture radar provides broad-area imaging at high resolutions, which is used in applications such as environmental monitoring, earth-resource mapping, and military systems.
This book presents the tools required for the digital processing of synthetic aperture radar images. They are of three types: (a) the elements of physics, (b) mathematical models and (c) image processing methods adapted to particular applications.
Chapter 1. The physical basis of synthetic aperture radar imagery (Jean-Marie Nicolas and Sylvie Le Hégarat-Mascle).

Chapter 2. The principles of synthetic aperture radar (Jean-Marie Nicolas and Frédéric Adragna).

Chapter 3. Existing satellite SAR systems (Jean-Marie Nicolas and Frédéric Adragna).

Chapter 4. Synthetic aperture radar images (Frédéric Adragna, Sylvie Le Hégarat-Mascle and Jean-Marie Nicolas).

Chapter 5. Speckle models (Armand Lopès, René Garello and Sylvie Le Hégarat-Mascle).

Chapter 6. Estimation of reflectivity and filtering of SAR images (Armand Lopès, Florence Tupin and Sylvie Le Hégarat-Mascle).

Chapter 7. Classification of SAR images (Danielle Ducrot, Florence Tupin and Sylvie Le Hégarat-Mascle).

Chapter 8. Detection of points, contours and lines (Florence Tupin and Armand Lopès).

Chapter 9. Geometry and relief (Frédéric Adragna).

Chapter 10. Radar-grammetry (Henri Maître).

Chapter 11. Radar-clinometry (Henri Maître).

Chapter 12. Interferometry (Frédéric Adragna and Jean-Marie Nicolas).

Chapter 13. Phase unwrapping (Emmanuel Trouvé and Henri Maître).

Chapter 14. Radar oceanography (Jean-Marc Le Caillec and René Garello).
