PREFERRED TERM
airborne radar imaging  
DEFINITION
  • Scanning of Earth's surface using radar (microwave) profilers mounted in airborne platforms from altitudes of ca. 5-10 km. Since radar wavelenghts are much longer than those of visible or infra-red light, an imaging radar can "see" through cloudy or dusty conditions.
