This work introduces a method to separate the ground and volume contributions from Polarimetric SAR Interferometric acquisitions. Based on the two layer model, the radar response may be decomposed into these two main components and the full rank polarimetric covariance matrices of the corresponding ground and volume layers may be extracted from the data. The technique is evaluated with real multibaseline fully polarimetric L-band data acquired in 2009 by the E-SAR airborne sensor over the forest in Traunstein, southern Germany
