Abstract

Space-borne interferometric SAR has advanced significantly in the last decades, with many successful Earth monitoring applications. The key point of this success lies in the fact that interferometric SAR supplies unprecedented phase and amplitude information characterizing target's physical parameters. This paper presents the role of interferometric SAR, specifically considering the bistatic mission TanDEM-X, for shallow lake water level estimation by using sediment storage.
