AbstractRADARSAT-2 has several capabilities that will be useful to geologists. Some of these capabilities include the availability of high-resolution 3 m synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images, multipolarization and fully polarimetric image modes, and left- and right-looking images. These capabilities are currently being evaluated. Our early results from several ongoing case studies have shown that RADARSAT-2 images will improve current structural and terrain image mapping techniques; provide high-resolution mineral exploration property maps from image fusion techniques; improve interferometric SAR (InSAR) deformation monitoring, particularly small active landslides; and possibly improve the classification of surficial sediments.
