BorealScat: A Tower-Based Tomographic and Polarimetric Radar Experiment in the Boreal Forest at P- and L-Band
Paper in proceedings, 2016

This paper describes BorealScat, a tower-based radar campaign for acquiring multitemporal polarimetric, tomographic and Doppler radar measurements at P-, L- and C-band over a hemi-boreal forest site in Remningstorp, Sweden. The facility consists of a 50-m high tower equipped with a radar system including an array of 30 antennas. The site will also be equipped with meteorological instruments and moisture sensors. The aim of the experiment is the temporal survey of radar signatures over time scales ranging from sub-seconds to years in varying environmental conditions. This experiment will provide fundamental information about the electromagnetic scattering mechanisms in boreal forests at P-, L- and C-band.
