SummaryObjectives: Development of analysis techniques and metrics to estimate land-cover type and parameters from X-Band dual polarimetric. Validation of these with field data and comparison with full polarimetric data. Method: Acquire full and dual polarimetric TSX data over study areas for a season. Concurrently gather field data. Perform analysis, compare and evaluate full and dual polarimetric data. Provide Report. Data Requirements: 3 Dual polarimetry and 3 Full polarimetry acquisitions over the growing period of crops and weeds (at 2 month intervals) in 2008-09 for comparative analysis. Deliverables: Analysis Algorithms for partial polarimetry parameter calculations and empirical parameters calculated using field measurements. Reports on research activity and solution development. Funding: APA (Australian Postgraduate Award) Research Scholarship. AUD 2000 p.a. research budget.
