Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This work will be a chapter in a book on Remote Sensing for Wetlands to be published by Elsevier Science. It describes the use of satellite synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image data for mapping and monitoring fresh water wetlands. The use of image thresholding techniques for surface water mapping and polarimetric decomposition for flooded vegetation monitoring are reviewed and summarized with the goal of aiding wetland scientists better understand and use SAR data.
