Abstract

During September-November 1995, and again in May-June 1996, high-resolution L-band HH-polarized SAR imagery of the entire Amazon basin was acquired by the National Space Development Agency of Japan's JERS-1 satellite. In a cooperative effort between NASDA, and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Alaska SAR Facility, the approximately 2500 scenes for each date are being mosaicked into digital datasets with 3 arc-second resolution, and regional mosaics at the original 12.5 m resolution are being compiled for selected areas.
