<About awarded research(activity)>
Paper “Singular-point Generating Mechanisms Based on the Correlations among the Parameters in Coherency Matrix and Those in the Optimized Scattering-mechanism Vector in PolInSAR”
This paper elucidates the generation mechanisms of singular points (SPs) by investigating the relationship between the phase distortion and the polarization state in polarimetric interferometric synthetic aperture radar(PolInSAR).
