Abstract
This paper compares the wind speed retrieval methods on C-band multi-polarization SAR measurements to find out the most appropriate one for each polarization data. The RADARSAT-2 SAR quad-polarization (VV+HH+VH+HV) data and NDBC buoy wind data were collocated. For VVpolarization, the retrieved wind speed are compared among four geophysical model function (GMF). For HH polarization, the retrieved wind speed are compared among four polarization ratio model (PR) based on CMOD5 GMF. For VH polarization, the retrieved wind speed are compared between two linear models. Comparisons show all of three polarimetric SAR data have the ability of retrieving wind speed. Based on the error analysis, the commendatory methods are proposed for each polarization.
