AbstractIn this paper, we discuss preliminary results of five Canadian-led Envisat AO projects (AOEs 368, 373, 569, 576, and 817). The goal of these projects is to evaluate and develop the potential of Envisat ASAR data for application to: landslide monitoring, river ice monitoring, soil moisture mapping, and lithological mapping. As Canadian researchers, our interest in working with Envisat ASAR data is strengthened by the development of the RADARSAT-2 satellite. Our results illustrate the potential of Envisat ASAR data as a source of information in support of the applications discussed. The findings of our river ice monitoring and lithological mapping study clearly demonstrate the effect of polarization on the image information content.
