A glimpse of future GMES Sentinel-1 radar images
Date:4/23/2009

first simulation and visualisation of Sentinel-1 capabilities to support land applications," commented Evert Attema from ESA's Sentinel-1 project.

In addition to the contribution from MDA Geospatial Services, the campaign is also expected to include a number of European and Canadian scientists who will be invited to help with ground activities. These activities will include the collection and analysis of information about land cover, crop type, crop condition and other parameters such as soil moisture. Of particular interest are the new algorithms and methods required to extract land-cover information from a dense temporal series of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images and follow how the crops develop.

"As the owner and operator of the RADARSAT-2 satellite, MDA Geospatial Services is looking forward to AgriSAR 2009," says Ron Caves from MDA. "The campaign provides a unique opportunity to thoroughly investigate the agricultural products that can be derived from multi-polarisation radar data and the methods and systems to generate these in an operational fashion."

As well as directly addressing the capabilities of the first two Sentinel-1 satellites for land applications, the campaign is also expected to help scientists investigate future developments in remote sensing with radar.

"The quad-polarisation imagery will allow researchers to investigate new types of products, for instance, high-resolution soil moisture maps and crop biomass, as well as help determine the added value of fully-polarimetric radar data for land applications," says Malcolm Davidson, ESA's Sentinel-1 Mission Scientist. "This will provide an exciting glimpse of what operational radar missions will look like and their capability beyond the current Sentinel-1 SAR satellite generation."
