Multimode/Multifrequency Low Frequency Airborne Radar Design
Applications for low frequency airborne radars.
|Forest classification and biomass retrieval||Biosphere and bioclimatology studies, especially for terrestrial carbon cycle evaluation||Side-looking SAR|
|Ice sheets sounding||Glaciology studies to better describe ice sheet dynamics, which is connected with climate changes and sea level modifications||Nadir-looking SAR or cross-track interferometric SAR|
|Subsurface geomorphology, soil moisture estimation, permafrost, and sea salinity analysis||Climate modeling||Side-looking SAR (subsurface analyses may require nadir-pointing geometry)|
|Target detection in forest areas||Military application||Side-looking SAR|
