The procedures for aerodynamic roughness length estimation from SAR data are illustrated in Figure 4, which mainly include ALOS PALSAR data processing and backscattering analysis, ground truth aerodynamic roughness length calculation using the wind gradient data, correlation analysis between the backscattering coefficient and the ground truth aerodynamic roughness length for different upwind sectors of various dimensions, and ultimately establishing of a quantitative relationship and the aerodynamic roughness length mapping.
