This figure shows result of scattering decomposition (Yamaguchi method) using ALOS-2 PALSAR-2 of Siak District, Riau Province Indonesia on 15 August 2015, where red, green and blue show double bounce, volume scattering and surface scattering respectively. Double bounced scattering expresses scattering from manmade targets, i.e. building. Volume scattering expresses scattering from vegetation, i.e. forest, crop etc. Surface scattering expresses scattering from flat body, i.e. road, runway, paddy field, water body (lake, river, sea) etc. The level 1.1 or single look complex of ALOS-2 PALSAR-2 image was provided by JAXA (PI Project No. 3170) and Polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar (PolSAR) was processed by Prof Josaphat Tetuko Sri Sumantyo.
