Editorial Reviews


“...This is a book that I strongly recommend—and one that should be widely read. The title says it all—with special attention to the last word—images. It is not about synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems, nor about the physics of microwave interaction (although the former is neatly summarized in early chapters). The authors have done a good job at providing a clear exposition of the SAR imaging process. Or, as summarized by Thuy Le Toan in the Foreword, ‘an integrated book that brings together both the basic properties of SAR images related to image formation and those related to scene properties.’ The extraction of the information contained within SAR imagery is the book’s prime focus, approaching the task from a generalized perspective that concentrates on the quantitative and statistical relationships between the image, the imaging process, and the target scene. Having said that, the authors do not consider abstract data analysis to be of much practical use, but rather they have tried to adopt such a rigorous approach throughout this book, but always with concern for the validation of a technique and its relevance to applications....” --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
This book concentrates on the use and further processing of SAR data after image formation rather than the process of image formation itself from raw phase history data. It is very well written and should be very useful to anyone who needs to get into SAR data analysis quickly.
