ASF Global Radiometric Terrain Corrected SAR Data
Entry ID: ASF_Radiometric_Terrain_Corrected_SAR_Data

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: ASF's SAR Radiometric Terrain Corrected (RTC) dataset gives terrestrial world-wide coverage; excluding Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland, and Asia north of 60 degrees latitude. Users can analyze radiometry with the effects of topography removed. Topography can be analyzed with the effects of layover and shadow corrected. RTC data has been used extensively to study deforestation.
