Electromagnetic Scattering Model for Rice Canopy Based on Monte Carlo Simulation
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 52, 153-171, 2005
Abstract
A scattering model for rice canopy based on Monte Carlo simulations is applied to interpret RADARSAT data and to predict the temporal response of rice growth. The model takes into account the coherent wave interactions among vegetative elements which usually occur in clusters with closely spaced elements. The model was also used to analyze the structural effect of rice fields on the scattering returns. Simulation results show a significant difference in L-band backscattering returns from rice fields with different structures, and are consistent with empirical observations from JERS-1 Campaign. Taking the ratio of HH over VV can help eliminating ambiguities in this inverse scattering problem.
