About the Authors
  • This introduction to the use of radar for remote sensing of natural surfaces provides the reader with a thorough grounding in practical applications, focusing particularly on terrestrial studies that may be extended to other planets. An historical overview of the subject is followed by an introduction to the nomenclature and methodology pertaining to radar data collection, image interpretation and surface roughness analysis. The author presents a summary (illustrated with examples from the natural environment) of theoretical explanations for the backscatter properties of continuous rough surfaces, collections of discrete objects, and layered terrain.

    • Presented at a level appropriate for a multidisciplinary audience, from undergraduate students to professionals in the Earth and planetary sciences, electrical engineering, and remote sensing.
    • Gives a broad overview of planetary science radar applications
    • Illustrated with examples from radar surveys of the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...this text belongs in the library of anyone interested in radar remote sensing. It is a well-written, comprehensive text that can easily be understood by someone expressing an ititial interest in the field, and contains sufficient information and analysis to keep the seasoned radar analyst interested. The author is to be congratulated on his achievement." Geomatica

    "The author's intention is to fill a perceived gap in the literature on radar backscatter analysis. The text meets this goal and would be suitable for a variety of university level courses in remote sensing. For the student of remote sensing data analysis, this text is well suited as a mid-level introduction to the specifics of radar remote sensing beyond the basic principles that should be acquired from a general subject primer...This well organized and written text is recommended..." The Leading Edge

    "A well-organized treatment." Choice
