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. When applied to crops, the best results are derived from the height difference between interferograms generated at HH+VV and HH-VV polarizations
