INTERPRETING LOCAL GEOLOGY FROM RADAR IMAGERY

THE INTENSITY OF RADAR RETURN ENERGY, WHICH IS DEPENDENT ON MANNER OF RADAR ILLUMINATION, SURFACE ROUGHNESS, AND GEOMETRY OF THE OBJECT, IS DISCUSSED AS APPLICABLE TO THE INTERPRETATION OF LOCAL GEOLOGY. THE PRINCIPLES OF RADAR INTERPRETATION OF LOCAL GEOLOGY ARE DESCRIBED AND ILLUSTRATED WITH RADAR IMAGES AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF AREAS IN THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES. ALSO DESCRIBED IS THE USE OF RADAR PRINCIPLES IN CONJUNCTION WITH KNOWLEDGE OF GEOMORPHIC PRINCIPLES TO OBTAIN A MAXIMUM OF INFORMATION. APPLICATIONS OF RADAR IMAGERY TO MILITARY TERRAIN INTELLIGENCE, NATURAL RESOURCES EXPLORATION, AND PLANETARY EXPLORATION ARE EXAMINED. /AUTHOR/
