REGIONAL SLOPES WITH NON-STEREO RADAR

TWO MONOSCOPIC RADAR IMAGES OF THE SAME AREA OF TERRAIN CAN BE USED FOR MEASUREMENT OF REGIONAL SLOPES. BY MEASURING THE LENGTHS OF INDIVIDUAL SLOPES ON EACH OF THE IMAGES, AND KNOWING THE LOOK ANGLE AT EACH POINT ACROSS THE IMAGES THE ANGLE OF EACH SLOPE CAN BE COMPUTED. THE TWO PIECES OF IMAGERY MAY BE TAKEN FROM OPPOSITE SIDES OF AN AREA OR BOTH FROM THE SAME SIDE. ACCURACY FOR INDIVIDUAL SLOPES IS FAIR, BUT FOR REGIONAL MEAN SLOPE THE ACCURACY IS HIGH. COMPENSATION CAN BE MADE FOR APPARENT SLOPE, AND GROUND RANGE OR SLANT RANGE DISPLAY SYSTEMS. /PE/
