ScopeALOS-2 and Sentinel-1, which have highly enhanced capacity compared to previous SAR satellites, were launched in 2014, and their utilization has been widely expanding as the data has accumulated. Now we are facing a new and abundant era of the satellite SAR, along with a worldwide trend to an open and free data policy of satellite data, and with next-generation advanced SAR satellite plans by several countries. In addition, SAR technologies with other platforms, such as ground-based SAR with high temporal resolution and UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) SAR with flexible operability, have also been developed and used for various targets. These facts indicate that the SAR utilization data has become widespread in both basic researches (e.g., earth science) and diverse applications (e.g., disaster prevention and forest monitoring). In this session, we would like to share a broad knowledge and information regarding SAR. A wide range of research topics from basic researches to advanced applications will be welcomed.
