AbstractInconsistencies in scientific literature related to radar compact polarimetry (CP) has raised issues in analysis tool development and in derived results comparison. These inconsistencies primarily result from confusion between the Forward Scattering Alignment (FSA) and the Backward Scattering Alignment (BSA) conventions. This can lead to the misinterpretation of results when the circular direction of rotation of the transmitted signal is not properly considered. This technical note summarizes and demonstrates the relationships between coherently received wave under a linear or a circular configuration for right circular transmitted signals under the BSA convention. As well, it defines the received Stokes vector, for right circular transmitted signals, in terms of a linear or a circular receiving bases and in terms of fully polarimetric data.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This technical note lists the different fundamental equations of radar compact polarimetry and demonstrates the cohesion between the different polarimetric bases.
