B023:
Cutting Edge Synthetic Aperture Radar Experiments with NASA’s UAVSAR





Session ID#: 27022

Session Description:
UAVSAR (Uninhabited Aerial Synthetic Aperture Radar) instruments have recently participated in multiple campaigns and experiments exploring the unique capabilities of high resolution interferometric SARs to advance algorithm developments in several earth science disciplines. Recent experiments have produced multi-temporal data stacks to reveal ground sinking in California and the Gulf Coast. The AfriSAR campaign utilized multi-baseline L-band InSAR observations to map canopy height in Gabonese forests.  The Oceans Melting Greenland mission utilized Ka-band single-pass interferometry to study glacier dynamics in Greenland.  Both L-band and Ka-band SARs participated in the SnowEx campaign to study snow dynamics.  Both L-band and P-band SARs participated in the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) in Alaska and Western Canada to study environmental change and its implications for social-ecological systems. We welcome contributions highlighting recent research derived with UAVSAR data from recent campaigns with L-, P- and Ka-band instruments. Applications include surface deformation, terrestrial ecology, cryosphere, and rapid response.
