Level 1.0 of PALSAR (ALOS) Data Processing
Entry ID: alos_Level1.0_of_palsar_Latest Version


Summary
Abstract: The Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR) is an active microwave sensor using L-band frequency to achieve cloud-free and day-and-night land observation.

The Level 1.0 of PALSAR is a reconstructed, unprocessed signal data appended with radiometric and geometric correction coefficients (appended but not applied).
Data files are Individual for each polarization (HH, VV, HV, VH).
