Abstract
The random walk model is studied with the objective to obtain a physical explanation for the texture of polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data. A simulator is designed to imitate the scattering process under different circumstances, taking into account different distributions for the scatterer number and the scatterer response, as well as mixtures of scatterers. Statistical analysis of the simulated data shows that the distribution of the scatterer response has an effect only when the ...
