AbstractThis chapter provides some examples of the operational uses of satellite radar images. These include the uses of polarimetric radar images for crop classification and earthquake damage assessment; radar image fusion for mineral exploration; interferometric SAR techniques for landslide and volcanic monitoring, multidate radar image enhancement techniques for oil spill monitoring and flood mapping, and sea ice mapping from enhanced scanSAR images. In the near future, new applications will be developed from current and future advanced SAR missions involving their high resolution, rapid revisits, and polarimetric capabilities. © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2013.
