POLinSAR 2005

17-Jan - 21-Jan 2005

ESA/ESRIN, Frascati, Italy

POLinSAR 2005 workshop brought together ESA Principal Investigators, scientists and students working in the field of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry (Pol-InSAR), and representatives from national, European and international space agencies.


The main objectives of the workshop were to:

  • Provide a forum for scientific exchange
  • Present new results from the latest studies in the field
  • Present the geophysical parameters that can be retrieved and their accuracy
  • Assess the available Pol-InSAR tools and data sets
  • Demonstrate the latest techniques and users tools
  • Assess the state of the art in the field
  • Make recommendations for algorithm development and new products
  • Formulate recommendations for future missions and applications - Report on progress/status of recommendations of POLinSAR 2003


The workshop focused on theory and methods in the fields of Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry around the following themes:

  • Studies on Polarimetry/Polarimetric Interferometry
  • Land-Agriculture Applications
  • Sea Ice
  • Forestry
  • Other Applications development
  • SAR Polarimetric Interferometry (Pol-InSAR)
  • Polarimetry and Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI)
  • Theoretical Modelling
  • Spaceborne missions for PolInSAR
  • Airborne PolInSAR campaigns
