Abstract
Assessment of ERS-1 SAR data for the monitoring of fallow land was performed over the Pointe Du Raz (Brittany, France), an agricultural region intensively crisscrossed by hedges delimiting small parcels. Comparison of the backscattering coefficients shows that from October to April, the identification of fallow land is possible while during late spring and summer identification appears more difficult. Texture analysis based on the texture spectrum approach does not allow the discrimination between waste land and cultivated land. SAR data could therefore be used for fallow land monitoring through a radiometric approach while the textural approach requires further investigation.
