ESA-ESRIN Workshop POLinSAR 2019 presentations are already available

The 9th International Workshop on Science and Applications of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry – POLinSAR 2019 was held in ESA-ESRIN in Frascati, Italy from 28th January to 1st February 2019.

The objectives of the workshop were:

  • Provide a forum for scientific exchange
  • Present the latest exploitation results from full-pol airborne and spaceborne systems and assess the state-of-the-art
  • Review retrieved bio-geophysical parameters and their accuracy
  • Make recommendations for algorithm development and new products
  • Support the preparation for ESA and Third Parties full-pol missions exploitation (BIOMASS, NOVASAR-S, RCM, SAOCOM, TerraSAR-L etc.)
  • Present innovative polarimetric applications and ideas for future polarimetric mission concepts
  • Report on the status of POLinSAR 2017 recommendations
