Synthetic aperture radar provides broad-area imaging at high resolutions, which can be used in applications such as environmental monitoring, earth-resource mapping and military systems.
This book presents the tools required for the digital processing of synthetic aperture radar images, which fall into three categories:
(a) theoretical/physical fundamentals;
(b) mathematical models;
(c) image processing methods adapted to particular applications.
A range of specialist authors examine the various facets of this exciting field, providing a wide-ranging and accessible resource to those interested in this area.
