Ecosystem monitoring with the Eos SAR
The expected requirements for the Earth Observing System synthetic aperture radar (Eos SAR) system as defined by the Eos interdisciplinary investigations for terrestrial ecosystem analysis are presented. The potential of the SAR meeting these requirements is discussed. Potential applications of the Eos SAR include determination of vegetation type and extend, total above-ground vegetation type and extent, total above-ground biomass, canopy geometry and structure, forest floor state, leaf area index, phenologic state, and canopy water content and potential. Experimental and theoretical evidence is presented.
