Minimize Calibration Activities

An ADEN report "Absolute Radiometric and Polarimetric Calibration of ALOS PALSAR Products generated within ADEN" describes the characteristics of Palsar products, absolute radiometric calibration and relative polarimetric calibration. Annexes to this report describe how to derive slant range and incident angle and how to estimate Faraday rotation angle from PLR data.

 

More specific information on calibration activities is included in the ALOS Palsar cyclic reports (available from mid-2008 to mid-2010), available here.
