ScopeIt has been three years since ALOS-2 and Sentinel-1A were launched by JAXA and ESA in 2014, and Sentinel-1B was also launched by ESA in April, 2016. Therefore, sufficient SAR observations targeted to various events all around the world have been conducted. Different platforms including ground-based SAR that has high-temporal resolution and UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) SAR that has flexible operability have been used for various targets. Nowadays, SAR data has become widespread in the basic researches like an earth science and other applications like disaster prevention and forest monitoring. Recently, advanced processing techniques are applied to new SAR data and development of these techniques is expected. In this session, we are interested in the results from all SAR research and applications. And we would like to share the knowledge of SAR technological development, and deepen discussion on the next-generation SAR observations.
