English abstract:
The sensitivity of backscatter changes in relation to soil
moisture, relevant to change detection, has been
investigated for L-band PALSAR Fine Beam data. The
results have been compared to corresponding
sensitivities derived from C-band SAR data. The study
has been carried out over two sites in the Volta basin in
western Africa. The influence of sub-pixel coverage of
trees and herbaceous vegetation in the SAR pixels has
been analysed. The sensitivity to soil moisture was
higher for PALSAR than for ASAR, but both datasets
showed a similar decreasing trend with increasing
vegetation density.
