This introduction to the use of radar for remote sensing of natural surfaces provides the reader with a thorough grounding in practical applications, focusing particularly on terrestrial studies that may be extended to other planets. An historical overview of the subject is followed by an introduction to the nomenclature and methodology pertaining to radar data collection, image interpretation and surface roughness analysis. The author presents a summary (illustrated with examples from the natural environment) of theoretical explanations for the backscatter properties of continuous rough surfaces, collections of discrete objects, and layered terrain.

Book Description:

This introduction to the use of radar for remote sensing of natural surfaces provides the reader with a thorough grounding in practical applications, focusing particularly on studies of terrestrial planets. An historical overview of the subject is followed by an introduction to radar data collection, image interpretation and surface roughness analysis. Case studies of radar surveys of the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars are then presented. The level is appropriate for students and professionals across a broad range of disciplines including Earth and planetary science, electrical engineering, and remote sensing.

About the Author:

Bruce Campbell received a Ph.D. in 1991 from the University of Hawaii for his radar polarization studies of volcanic and impact-cratered terrains on the Moon, Earth, and Venus. He took a position at the Smithsonian Institution's Center for Earth and Planetary Studies in 1992. His research interests include comparative studies of planetary terrains using imaging radar data; high-resolution topographic studies of planetary analogue surfaces; and analysis of scattering, shadowing and emission relationships in radar and visible/IR remote sensing. Dr Campbell also managed the NASA Planetary Instrument Definition and Development Program, which develops advanced spacecraft instruments and new remote sensing technologies, from 1994 to 1996. He became Department Chairman of the Center for Earth and Planetary Studies in 1998.
