ISPRS WG III/3

Active Microwave Remote Sensing

Our Mission

The working group on "Active microwave remote sensing" aims to foster the visibility and impact of research in the field of active microwave remote sensing, most notably represented by synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and radar altimetry technologies, in the ISPRS. In this context, we focus both on methodological developments, as well as relevant applications in the field of Earth observation. To strengthen the radar community within ISPRS, we will closely collaborate with other societies, e.g. IEEE-GRSS.
