Entry ID: AIRSAR_NASA_JPL

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: AirSAR is an airborne Synthetic Aperature Radar imaging radar
instrument. AirSAR has been flown on many flights and is involved in
many experiments. The AirSAR data and image database at NASA JPL
contains survey and precision data as well as complex radar data. SAR
radar imagery is also available from the AirSAR web site for a number
of locations and time periods. The Survey, precision, and complex data
sets consists of data in TOPSAR and POLSAR data modes from C-, L-, and
P-band polarizations.
