L-band synthetic aperture radar phenomenology of forests
Investigate the L-band synthetic aperture radar phenomenology of forested areas in order to develop and understand coherent change detection techniques for monitoring deforestation. This knowledge would then be used to develop techniques for detecting changes in the foliage. Work would also be done to understand and compensate for the errors introduced by the atmosphere and the radar hardware. The project would yield an understanding (and perhaps demonstration) of the methods, requirements, performance and theory of coherent synthetic aperture radar change detection in forestry at L-band. Knowledge of the interaction of RF EM radiation with inhomogeneous dielectric structures, fluent knowledge and use of Maxwell’s equations in complex inhomogeneous dielectric structures, understanding of polarization and its interaction with complex inhomogeneous dielectric structures, programming skills. Knowledge of synthetic aperture radar would be helpful.
