Abstract
Basic principles of radar polarimetry are introduced and various optimization procedures for the propagation (scattering) range operator equation and the received power expressions are presented and compared. Based on a complete description of isolated and distributed scatterers, target classification, target-versus-clutter discrimination, and optimal contrast enhancement algorithms are derived and shown to be of great utility in the proper interpretation of POL-RAD/SAR microwave signatures in terrestrial and planetary remote sensing.
