AbstractMicrowave imaging systems hold great promise of meeting one of the most important requirements of data for vegetation monitoring - namely data timeliness. Furthermore, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery will be routinely available within the near future with the launches of the European Space Agency, (1990), Japanese (1991) and Canadian RADARSAT (1994) satellites.Within Canada, there is an extensive program underway (Radar Data Development Program - RDDP) to develop the necessary methodologies to use SAR data for renewable resource management. This program includes data acquisition using both airborne SAR imagery and ground-based scatterometers.This paper describes this RDDP program in some detail and presents some pertinent results attained to date.
