    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)
    Accés obert
    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 ...

    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)
    Accés obert
    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 ...
