  • A polarimetric ultra-wide band field scatterometer 

    Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Fabregas Canovas, Francisco Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1995)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    “TERESA” (Terrestrial Radar Equipment for Scattering Analysis) is a ground-based, fully polarimetric scatterometer operative in the S, C, X, and Ku bands. It has been designed to obtain the complete backscattering matrix ...
  • Experimental comparison of different scattering mechanism selections for vegetation height retrieval by POLINT 

    López-Sánchez Sánchez, Juan Manuel; Fortuny Guasch, Joaquim; Siebert, Julien; Fabregas Canovas, Francisco Javier; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2000)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The 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 

    Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Soriano Ortiz, Cecilia; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Baldasano Recio, José María (OPTICAL SOC AMER, 1999-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A 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 ...
  • Raman LIDAR Link Budget and Components 

    Eizmendi Valles, Miguel Ignacio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-09-08)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Anglés: 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 ...
  • Statistics of the slope-method estimator 

    Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Albiol Schnitger, Lorena (Optical Society of America, 2000-11-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    The 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 ...
