Abstract:

The FINAL MANUSCRIPT of the Proceedings of a NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Direct and Inverse Methods in Radar Polarimetry This is the second ARW in a series of three NATO-ARWs dealing with direct and inverse methods in electromagnetic sensing, imaging and target identification versus clutter discrimination with applications to electromagnetic wideband, wide area surveillance of the terrestrial and planetary deep-earth, surface to atmospheric environments. During the first NATO-ARW-IMEI88 NATO-ASI, Series C-143, 1985, we assessed the inverse methods in electromagnetic imaging primarily for solving radar scattering problems, including mathematical and numerical inversion techniques and signal and image processing with specific emphasis on the vector polarization nature of electromagnetic fields. The resulting two part Proceedings are highly praised in the international literature resulting in an extraordinary high sales record which encouraged us to plan, to organize and execute this second ARW on the more specific topic of Direct and Inverse Methods in Radar Polarimetry NATO-ARW-DIMRP88 NATO-ASI, Series C-350, Parts 12, 1981 emphasizing advancements made in polarimetric radar POL-RAD and in polarimetric synthetic-aperture radar POL-SAR theory, metrology, signalimage processing, and polarimetric technology.
