PSEUDO RADAR

AN ANALYSIS OF SIDE-LOOKING, K-BAND RADAR IMAGERY INDICATED THAT MOST OF ITS GEOLOGICAL USEFULNESS CAME FROM (1) ITS SMALL-SCALE PRESENTATION (AROUND 1:200,000), AND (2) ITS STRONG, JET-BLACK SHADOWS, WHICH MARKEDLY EMPHASIZED THE TOPOGRAPHIC RELIEF. SEVERAL PUBLISHED PAPERS HAVE EMPHASIZED THE EFFECT OF LOW SUN-ANGLE ON THE APPEARANCE OF VERTICAL AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY, SO WE DEVELOPED FROM THIS A TECHNIQUE FOR SIMULATING SIDE-LOOKING RADAR (SLAR) BY CONVENTIONAL AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY, BUT WITH THE SUN AROUND 20-30 DEGREES ABOVE THE HORIZON. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THIS UNCONVENTIONAL TYPE OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY BE TERMED LOW SUN-ANGLE PHOTOGRAPHY (LSAP). /AUTHOR/
