Biomass mission has been selected for implementation as the 7th Earth Explorer Mission. This is a P-band (435MHz) interferometric and polarimetric SAR mission for global observation of above ground biomass and associated geophysical parameters as a primary objective. Biomass has been defined in detail through two paral-lel and competing industrial Phase A and B1 studies and complementary science and technology studies. This paper gives an overview of the Biomass mission and detailed information of the payload and novel technologies used for its implementation.
