Polarimetric Analysis and Change Detection Basics of Polarimetry Polarimetric information for ship dectection Page 33 34. Some Polarimetric BasicsVFor a singlepolarization, thereturn isproportional to thetarget crosssection. HFor HH we wouldget a returnindicated by red.For VV it would beblue.So the amount of return we get depends ontarget orientation and polarizationPage 34 35.

Some Polarimetric Basics X Polarimetric radar data provides full scattering information in the direction of the line of sight YYX We want to compare these targets. Page 36 37. Some Polarimetric BasicsPolarimetric radardata provides fullscattering informationin the direction of theY line of sight YHX YXH We can do some fancy arithmetic and rotate the scattering matrix until we get a maximum X and a minimum Y. Then we can compare their properties.Page 37 38.
