Title: Detecing Surface Change Created by an Underground Chemical Explosion Using Fully Polarimetric VideoSAR

Abstract

Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) flew its Facility for Advanced RF and Algorithm Development (FARAD) X-Band (9.6 GHz center frequency), fully-polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) in VideoSAR-mode to collect complex-valued SAR imagery before, during, and after the fifth and sixth Source Physics Experiment's (SPE-5 and SPE-6) underground explosion. The results from the fifth Source Physics Experiment (SPE-5) used single-polarimetric VideoSAR data while SPE-6 used single and fully-polarimetric VideoSAR data. We show that SAR can provide surface change products indicative of disturbances caused by the underground chemical explosions. These are surface coherence measures, Po1SAR change signatures, and differential interferometric SAR (InSAR) height change.
