AbstractRADARSAT has 35 different beam and incidence angle positions with spatial resolution varying from 10-100m. In order to maximize its use for geological and geomorphological mapping, it is necessary to evaluate the various beam modes and report on their suitability.

Our results have shown that selected RADARSAT viewing geometry is significant for the delineation of geological structures, lithological units, landforms and terrain types. In mountainous terrains, incidence angles varying from 20-31 degrees, are Small incidence angles, varying from 20-31 degrees, are suitable for the Precambrian shield terrains. A wide range of incidence angles, varying from 25 to 45 degrees, is suitable for the flat and rolling prairies.
