Experimental comparison of different scattering mechanism selections for vegetation height retrieval by POLINT (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2000)
Open AccessThe application of polarimetric radar interferometry to the estimation of vegetation height is studied. A comparison between different choices for the scattering mechanisms employed in the retrieval algorithm is presented. ...
Lidar inversion of atmospheric backscatter and extinction-to-backscatter ratios by use of a Kalman filter (OPTICAL SOC AMER, 1999-03-01)
Open AccessA first inversion of the backscatter profile and extinction-to-backscatter ratio from pulsed elastic-backscatter lidar returns is treated by means of an extended Kalman filter (EKF). The EKF approach enables one to overcome ...

Open AccessAnglés: Ground-based Cherenkov telescopes of the Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope (IACT) class observe cosmic gamma-rays by collecting the Cherenkov light formed in atmospheric electromagnetic showers initiated by ...
(Optical Society of America, 2000-11-30)
Open AccessThe slope method has customarily been used and is still used for inversion of atmospheric optical parameters, extinction, and backscatter in homogeneous atmospheres from lidar returns. Our aim is to study the underlying ...
