AbstractThe document discusses and demonstrates new results from case studies examining the extraction of information from RADARSAT-2 type Synthetic Aperture Radar data for applications in the fields of agriculture, cartography, disaster management, geology, coastal zones and oceans, and sea ice. This includes promising results of limited research into techniques for data fusion and the applicability of products in which RADARSAT-2 type data are fused with data from other remote sensing sources. In addition, the report introduces selected software tools for use with RADARSAT-1 and/or polarimetric SAR data. The results presented contribute to an updated assessment of a) the effect of the most important technical enhancements of RADARSAT-2 on the data information content and b) the applications potential of RADARSAT-2 relative to RADARSAT-1. The recommendations emphasize a need for research and development (R&D) leading to an improved understanding of image information content as a function of polarization.
